Three charged with kidnapping, two with murder
B Y D aILY U NION S TaF F
Junction City police arrested three people this week in connection to an apparent kidnapping and murder after authorities discovered a body matching the description of a woman who had been missing since Feb. 7. Junction City police Wednesday night arrested 22-year-old Marryssa Middleton of Colorado for suspicion of first degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and conspiracy. Police also arrested 23-year-old Drexel Alexander Woody of Fort Riley for aiding and abetting a first degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and conspiracy. Police arrested 25-yearold Larry Lamathis Anderson of Manhattan Thursday afternoon for first degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and conspiracy. Middleton and Alexander were arrested after a body matching the description of 24-year-old Amanda Clemons was found Wednesday night in rural Geary County, Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown stated in a Thursday press release. Anderson was arrested several hours after police announced the other two individuals’ arrests. The identity of the body found Wednesday hadn’t yet been officially verified as of

late Friday night. An autopsy is scheduled for today in Kansas City. Police reported Clemons missing Feb. 10, requesting the public’s assistance in locating her so her welfare could be checked. Clemons reportedly was missing since Feb. 7, when she was last seen leaving room 112 of the Budget Host Hotel, 820 S. Washington St. in Junction City. Police received information stating Clemons was observed “being placed” in a silver vehicle occupied by two males and two females. On Wednesday, Junction City detectives and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents developed information leading them to execute a search warrant on Fort Riley involving the investigation.

The book “No Mail for Mitchell” was a fun page-turner for second grader Shannon Robinson and Sen. Jerry Moran. During Westwood Elementary School’s “Rockin’ Readers,” Moran sat by Shannon in the library as she pointed and read words in a colorful book. After a while, there were no more pages to turn. “Thanks for reading to me, and I like this book too,” Moran said. The purpose of his early Friday morning visit was to observe the program, which helps improve the reading skills of students. “I’m a fan of reading,” Moran said to the children. “When I was your age I loved to read and I still love to read today.” His next visit was Washington Elementary School, which was recognized as a distinguished Title I School
by the National Title I Association for academic achievements. Schools in the category have a large lowincome population and receive federal funds. “It’s very useful for me to have an understanding and appreciation of what our educators face in Kansas,” Moran said about his Friday tour. “One of the things you learn about visiting schools in Junction City and across Kansas is what tremendous challenges our educators have.” Moran said military families face obstacles with moving and parents deployed. Another challenge is teaching students learning English as a secondary language. The visit to Washington Elementary included a tour of the building and conversations with students and teachers. During the tour, Moran said he saw caring teachers. “All Kansas families have the opportunity to pursue education,” Moran said. “The equalizing opportunity we have in this country for everybody to succeed is the chance to
have a good quality education in school districts around Kansas and around the country.” Lorraine Walker, principal of Washington Elementary School, appreciated Moran’s visit. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to share what happens in USD 475,” she said. Walker said the school emphasizes the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards, which are based on the Common Core Standards. The standards were developed to bring together a single set of educational standards in English, language arts, math and science. “We want our students to be successful here, so it can happen anywhere,” Walker said. Board of Education President Ferrell Miller said it was a good opportunity for Moran to see the work being done in the classroom. “Any opportunity that elected officials have to come into the school to see what’s being taught and learned is a good thing for all of us,” Miller said.
Victory Chapel to serve as Chapman could Fort Riley’s ‘icon of hope’ see Dollar General by 2015
B Y A LIX KUNkLE B Y C HasE JORdaN
FORT RILEY — The physical and emotional strengths of a soldier are two important traits a soldier must have. But in order to be a balanced soldier, according to Chaplain Col. Harry Rauch, a soldier’s connection to God is also key. “The religious aspect, the spiritual resiliency, and their connection with God is very important in terms of everyone’s overall well being,” Rauch said Thursday. Rauch joined Fort Riley officials in dedicating the installation’s Victory Chapel Thursday morning. The facility, a 22,500 square-foot building on Trooper Drive, will host the Fort Riley Catholic, Protestant and Jewish congregations, and will also serve as a meeting place for soldiers and families alike. Chaplain Brig. Gen. Charles R. Bailey, Deputy Chief of Chaplains, said Victory Chapel represents

The purpose of the addition is to promote the area for economic development. “It’s what we were looking for when we did this project and it’s moving in the direction of where we want to go,” Bieker said. “It’s good for the community.” Bieker said the city invested about $100,000 per

The Overland Parkbased company is contributing $10,000 for a shared driveway with a nearby bank. “It’s coming along quickly,” he said. “I’m excited.” The store is expected to employ eight people and generate $1.2 million per year.

Council member wants superintendent to resign
B Y T IM WEIdEMaN
MILFORD — City Council member Doug Kneisl has submitted a letter for other council members to review requesting city superintendent Randy Colp resign due to allegations of misconduct. The letter, which Kneisl provided to The Daily Union, lists numerous reasons why he believes Colp should step down. Those reasons include an ongoing issue
of Colp receiving about $12,000 in health insurance benefits for which he didn’t qualify because of his part-time employment status, according to city code, from September 2012 to September 2013. Other reasons are allegations including improper building permit procedures, working on two city council members’ homes as a contractor and other incidents discussed during open meetings dating back to last year.

How do I keep my child from talking back to me?
Question How do I stop my child from talking back to me? Answer Remember when you are giving your child positive guidance, make sure you take into consideration the age and development of the child. At ages 2 and 3, your child will most likely start to test your authority by engaging in this behavior. While it is developmentally appropriate for him or her to attempt to control the situation, that does not mean you don’t correct your child because now is the time to address this
Brown Bag problem. If you take the time to enforce that this is not acceptable behavior to your child now at age 3, then by the time your child is 7, this should not be a problem. The problem occurs when we as parents don’t correct the behavior, and children then begin to feel

like this behavior is acceptable. It may happen at the end of a difficult day, or when you have a million things to get done, but stopping what you are doing and addressing the situation is worth the time. If your child is older and is not responding to discussing the situation, then move into appropriate consequences for their action. Make the crime fit the punishment, so to speak. For example, take away your teenager’s driving privileges for 48 hours, but remember, only give conse-
quences you can live with as the adult. For a younger child, don’t allow him or her to play with their favorite toy for the day. When deciding on a punishment, please remember to stay away from any action that will deprive your child their basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter. All children want positive guidance and direction. It gives them a feeling of security and structure. Children instinctively want to behave and please you, but any attention is better
than no attention. Whatever decision you make, be consistent.

Opera House to present comedy double-feature
The C.L. Hoover Opera House in Junction City will be hosting a double-feature at the end of the month, featuring a Salina musician and a national comedian. Dan St. Paul will headline the music-comedy double feature Feb. 28 with his clean comedy routine, “What’s Funny After 50?” Opening for him will be singer/songwriter Ann Zimmerman. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. St. Paul has been chronicling his life on stage for 30 years. He has appeared on NBC, ABC, FOX and Comedy Central and has opened for Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, but after turning 50 he turned his experiences as a suburban husband and father and dealing with the frustrations of everyday life into a comedy routine. Zimmerman, a native and resident of Salina, grew up singing folksongs with her family to the strums of her mother’s autoharp. Her music celebrates the joy, sorrow, grandeur and silliness of life, especially life on the windy plains. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for senior citizens (age 65+) and military ID holders and $15 for students (age 18 and under).

GCH’s Home Health receives high honors
Special to The Daily Union
Home Health at Geary Community Hospital has been named a 2013 Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) Honors recipient. The award recognizes home health agencies that provide the best patient experience. HHCAHPS is a standardized tool used to measure patient perceptions of care provided by Medicare-certified home health agencies. Established by Deyta, the annual honor recognizes the 20 percent of home health agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view. HHCAHPS honors acknowledges the highest performing agencies ranked by analyzing satisfaction measures covering both performance and improvement of care over a 12-month period. Deyta used the HHCAHPS survey results from more than 1,200 eligible home health agencies contained in its HHCAHPS database with an evaluation period of April 2012 to March 2013. Deyta partners with thousands of hospice, home health and healthcare organizations to simplify data driven management. Home Health at the hospital was also named one of the HomeCare Elite for 2013, an award of excellence for top performing agencies from the OCS HomeCare National Research Corporation and Decision Health. The organization identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare certified agencies in the nation. Winners of this award are ranked by an analysis of publicly reported data on performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices, quality improvements and consistency, and financial performance. Home Care Services is located at 1310 W. Ash St., across from the hospital.

Kansans targeted by court scams
TOPEKA—Kansas residents who receive unusual phone calls or emails from a person claiming to be affiliated with a Kansas court need to be aware they might be the target of a scam. In one scam, residents report they received a phone call from someone claiming to be affiliated with a local court or sheriff’s office who demands the person pay a fine for failing to report for jury duty. Anyone who receives a call of this type should hang up immediately and report it to local law enforcement. In another scam, residents report receiving an email from a Kansas court that encourages them to click on a link to confirm a court complaint was filed. It is believed the link is used to deliver a virus onto the recipient’s computer when it is clicked. Anyone who receives an email of this type should delete it immediately. A person who receives an unusual communication that does not fit the profile of either of these scams can contact a local court official to confirm whether it’s valid.

The Daily Union. Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014 Rothlisberg to hold town hall in Milford
Chapman helping send veterans to Washington D.C.
B Y C HASE JORDAN
Rep. Allan Rothlisberg (R-Grandview Plaza) will hold a town hall meeting at 10 a.m. today at the Milford Town Hall in Milford.
CHAPMAN — Inside the Chapman United Church, Mike VanCampen proudly held up a bright red shirt embedded with the bald eagle and American Flag before giving it to World War II veteran Ernie Wilkins. Along with his wife Kay, Wilkins organized a dinner with Valentine’s Day theme to help send hundreds of veterans to Washington D.C. for the Kansas Honor Flight program. The organization helps veteran from WWII and the Korean and Vietnam wars travel to the nation’s capital to visit their memorials. Wilkins reflected in his service in WWII, a war in which millions of veterans served. “Many did not return and that’s something that pops in your head when you’re at the memorial,” Wilkins said. “They gave everything.” With more than 100 tickets sold, the fundraiser collected $1,000 from the spaghetti dinner. Treasurer Lowell Downey said the organization began more than a year ago. “Everything has been going well,” Downey said. “We got some really good volunteers.” The organization is working to raise more than $200,000 to take more than 300 veterans to Washington, D.C. “We need to raise the funds to accomplish that mission,” Downey said. The trips for the veterans are completely paid for and cost between $600 and $700. VanCampen said the trips allow participants to bond and share comradeship. “The biggest thing is to see how the public reacts to them for what they did for our country,” he said. “The public that happens to be there are over them like rock stars.”
Rep. Tom Moxley (R-Council Grove) and Clark Shultz (R-McPherson) will speak during a legislative coffee today at the Methodist Church in Council Grove. The event is hosted by the Council Grove/Morris County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, and the Morris County Farm Bureau Association. The Kansas Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators will be holding a College Goal Sunday event from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at Manhattan High School, where students and parents can receive professional, one-on-one help in filling out the Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA). The event is free. One student will also win a $500 scholarship to the school of their choice. The scholarship recipient must be a first-semester freshman in the fall of 2014.

Contrary to popular opinion, VanCampen said a lot of WWII veterans did not receive big parades after coming home because a lot were still serving in the unoccupied countries of Japan and Germany. “They came back individually and didn’t have a big welcome,” he said. “Seventy years later, when they come back from a Honor Flight as a group, they do get a huge welcome into Wichita.” For more information visit www.kansashonorflight.org. Honor Flight donations can be sent to the Wilkins at 629 Glick, Chapman, KS 67431.

Milford planning event to help Texas town
B Y T IM WEIDEMAN
MILFORD — As a community reliant on a volunteer fire department, Milford residents understand how vital those brave individuals are to protecting their homes, businesses and lives. This summer, the town has something special planned in hopes of supporting a similar community — West, Texas. The town suffered a tragedy April 17, 2013, when a fertilizer plant explosion killed 15 people, including a dozen first responders, and injured more than 300 people. From Aug. 1 to 3, Milford will host “Pulling for Heroes,” an old-fashioned fire wagon pull tournament. Event organizers are aiming to bring 64 teams to Milford’s baseball diamond to participate. The event will raise funds for the West Fire Department. “This is going to be something that’s going to help a fire department that’s in a little town just like us,” Milford Fire
What you should know
Pulling for Heroes will be a 64-team, double-elimination tournament. The entry fee for four-person teams is $140. First, second and third place finishers will receive cash prizes of $1,000, $600 and $400, respectively, based on 64 teams. Events will begin the evening of Aug. 1 with an early check-in and dinner for teams at 7:30 p.m. Check-in will again start Aug. 2 at 7 a.m. with the first races beginning at 8 a.m. On Aug. 3, races begin at 8 a.m. and will run until about 2 p.m. A ceremony will follow the end of the last race. The first 64 teams to return entry forms will be accepted. For more information, contact Brad Roether at (785) 223-1332 or email@example.com. The event also can be found online by searching for the Pulling for Heroes page on Facebook.
Department Chief Bill Draper said at Thursday’s City Council meeting. During the meeting, Mayor Brad Roether explained to council members how a group of Milford community leaders quickly gathered to create the idea. “In less than 30 days, we came up with a really good scheme for the city of Milford,” Roether said. At the ball diamond, teams will pull antique fire wagons from the Milford Fire Department as fast as possible on a designated course. Teams will consist of four members with one alternate. Three winning teams will receive cash prizes. While Roether and

other tournament organizers hope crowds flock to Milford for the event, the real point is to support the city of West, which will receive all proceeds and all entry fees. “This is all 100 percent donated back to the West, Texas, Fire Department,” Roether said. The goal, Roether said, is to try and raise $15,000 to $20,000. Other attractions for non-competitors will include food, beer, bleachers for viewing the races and other forms of entertainment. “We’ve set this up in a way that we’re going to have a big community event,” Roether said. Interest in the tournament already is building.
“We’re already getting a lot of donations for this,” Roether said. “We’re not asking the city for anything, as of yet.” To draw attention to the event, organizers have enlisted the help of officials in Topeka to send a flyer out to every fire department in Kansas to see if those departments would consider fielding teams. Roether said he’s also been in contact with officials from West, who he said are excited about the event. Now that the event has been announced, a few details still need to be ironed out before August. “It’s going to get fun now with the planning committee,” Roether said.

‘Waltons’ patriarch Waite dies
By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Ralph Waite, who played the kindand-steady patriarch of a tight-knit rural Southern family on the TV series “The Waltons,” died Thursday, his manager said. He was 85. Waite, who lived in the Palm Springs area, died at midday, manager Alan Mills said. Mills, who did not know the cause of death, said he was taken aback because Waite had been in good health and still working. Waite appeared last year in episodes of the series “NCIS,” in which he played the dad of star Mark Harmon’s character. He also appeared in “Bones” and “Days of Our Lives.”

A new ‘Tonight’ dawns with Jimmy Fallon as host
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — On the walls of Jimmy Fallon’s office are photos. Lots of photos. Of his 2007 marriage to film producer Nancy Juvonen. Of their 6-month-old daughter, Winnie. Of his mom and dad as newlyweds. Fallon points them all out to a visitor proudly. But the dominant photo is a portrait of Johnny Carson, aglow in front of his “Tonight Show” drapes. “I look at that every day,” says Fallon, “and just go, ‘Yeah — it’s SO fun!”’ Already Fallon is immersed in this kind of fun. For five years he hosted NBC’s “Late Night,” a job he relinquished only days ago. And now he’s looking ahead to the Big Show, “The Tonight Show,” where Monday, at the special time of 12 midnight EST, he retrieves Carson’s mantle — back in New York after 42 years in Los Angeles. “It’s giant! It’s a big TV moment!” says Fallon. “Even if it wasn’t me, I would tune in to watch.” A Manhattan home base perfectly suits its new host, a consummate New Yorker, while bringing it under the same hallowed roof (NBC’s Rockefeller Center headquarters) as “Late Night” and “Saturday Night Live,” other jewels in the crown of Lorne Michaels, its new executive producer. It also allows “Tonight” to make a clean break from its turbulent postCarson era under Jay Leno (and, fleetingly, Conan O’Brien), when the Carson-bequeathed formula of jokes, celebs and chitchat was, too often, upstaged by behind-thescenes soap opera. Leno was consistently the late-night ratings winner, but never won much respect from the public, critics, or even his own network, which twice sent him packing from “Tonight.” Back in New York, where both “The Tonight Show” and Carson as its host made their start, this 60-year-old TV institution is poised to pick up the legend from where it languished after Carson’s 1992 retirement. The show will even recommission that sacred space — Studio 6B — where Carson reigned before his 1972 move west. “I wish Johnny Carson was still around, so he could see what we did with his studio,” says Fallon. “I can’t WAIT to show everybody!” But even as the 39-yearold waxes eagerness about the new “Tonight Show,” he wants everyone to know it won’t really be so different, after all: essentially an hour-earlier “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” including its house band, the Roots (though this eight-piece ensemble will expand by two horns), its announcersidekick, Steve Higgins, and comic bits like “Slow Jam the News” and “Thank-you Notes.” “When we started ‘Late Night,’ we were DOING ‘Late Night,”’ Fallon explains, “but over five years it’s kind of grown, and blossomed into what it became, which is ‘The Tonight Show.’ We grew into it!” Fallon first became popular during his six years on “Saturday Night Live,” where he displayed a chameleonic range of characters and impersonations, plus a musicality that grants him uncanny skill at mimicking numerous recording stars. His 2004 departure from “SNL” to pursue a film career didn’t pan out, particularly with the comedy flop “Taxi,” in which he co-starred with Queen Latifah (who now has her own talk show, in daytime). “I learned a lesson from that movie,” he says. “I definitely appreciate everything I get now, where I probably wouldn’t have if that movie was a giant hit. I’m kind of happy that my film career didn’t take off.” Now a TV staple, Fallon declares that he’s developed “a voice that people expect from us.” What is that voice? “Fun. Nice. Absurd,” he says reflectively. A thoughtful pause, then a laugh. “I’m still working on the list.” His key strength as host boils down to his unflagging engagement, says “Tonight Show” producer Josh Lieb. “He’s got genuine empathy for his guests and for the audience,” he said. “He’s trying to give them the best of himself. vated. Victoria Guerrero and her husband, Fernando, bought a 10-acre plot of land southeast of Baldwin City just before Fernando started a two-year military deployment to Germany, the Lawrence JournalWorld reported. When they returned to Douglas County last February, they were stunned to see the land where they planned to build their dream home was dotted with oil wells. That included four new wells and an injection well for disposal of the drilling waste. The Guerreros knew when they bought the land that someone else held a lease to the mineral rights, but Victoria Guerrero said there had been little if any drilling activity in the area for many years. During the two years the couple were overseas, she said they never were notified that the leaseholder intended to drill, as they are supposed to do according to the Kansas Corporation Commission. “If they had,” Victoria Guerrero said,” questions would have been raised then.” The land they bought for $65,000 has recently been appraised for less than half that value, and they can’t get a loan to build on it because there is no space that would meet the setback requirements for building near a well, Victoria said. State Sen. Tim Holland, a Baldwin City Democrat, has introduced a bill that he says would give surface-right holders more protection when old leases are reactivated. Senate Bill 319 would limit oil drilling to one well per 10 acres unless the property owner consents to more. It also would require the KCC to adopt rules governing wells within 1,000 feet of an occupied structure. “With these new technologies coming into play, you’ve got places where they’ve had wells in the past but they’ve been low producing or idle for several years,” Holland said. “In the meantime, you have people who’ve bought homes out in the country, and it’s a quality-of-life issue.” His bill has been assigned to the Senate Natural Resources Committee but has not been scheduled for a hearing.
Writers ask for monarch butterflies’ protection
MEXICO CITY — Dozens of scientists, artists, writers and environmentalists on Friday urged the leaders of Mexico, Canada and the United States to devote part of their meeting next week to discussing ways to protect the Monarch butterfly. A letter to the three leaders signed by more than 150 intellectuals, including Nobel literature laureate Orham Pamuk, U.S. environmentalist Robert Kennedy Jr. and Canadian author Margaret Atwood , notes the Monarch population has dropped to the lowest level since recordkeeping began in 1993. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, U.S. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Obama are meeting in Toluca, near Mexico City, on Wednesday to discuss such matters as economic competitiveness, trade and investment, entrepreneurship and security. The Monarch’s spectacular annual migration to spend the winter in Mexico is little understood. Experts blame the drop in numbers on several things: extreme weather trends, a dramatic reduction of the butterflies’ habitat in Mexico from illegal logging, and genetically modified crops in the U.S. displacing milkweed, which the species feeds on. The petition, put together by Mexican writer and environmentalist Homero Aridjis, says Mexico is addressing the logging problem and calls on the U.S. and Canada to deal with the impact of their agricultural policies.
This April 4, 2013 file photo released by NBC shows Jimmy Fallon, host of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” in New York. Fallon will debut as host of his new show, “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” on Feb. 17.
“He is the most inclusive comic I’ve ever known,” adds Lieb, whose credits include “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and the sitcom “NewsRadio.” “Some comics want to shut the audience out. Jimmy really wants to bring the whole world in on the joke.” Fallon is also up for anything, and his guests seem chill about following his lead. Like when he and toughguy action-film star Jason Statham doused each other with pitchers of water during a card game called Water War. “I’m not afraid to get wet,” says Fallon, chortling at the memory. “I’m not afraid to get messy.” It seems to be paying off. Note that charter “Late Night” host David Letterman held that post for more than a decade before launching “Late Show” (now Fallon’s CBS rival at 11:35 p.m.). O’Brien labored 15 long years before his short-lived promotion to “Tonight.” Now, after only a fiveyear internship, Fallon has graduated to what’s repeatedly, momentously, hopefully described as his “last job.” “That’s what it SHOULD be,” he nods. “It’s a great job, and it should be the last job, if you do it right. I’m looking forward to being here a long time!”
NE Kansas residents feel crowded by oil producers
LAWRENCE — New technologies that allow more oil to be pulled out of formerly low-producing wells have brought oil operators back to northeast Kansas, much to the dismay of landowners who are starting to feel crowded out of their own properties. Some families complain that the drilling on their properties has sharply reduced land values and quality of life, and a state senator has filed a bill to protect people when old leases are suddenly reacti-

Another view There’s no escape from Olympic spoilers
The following editorial appeared in the Chicago Tribune on Thursday, Feb. 13:
re you saving yourself for the replay? Are you hoping, for example, to make it through your workday without finding out if Indiana’s Nick Goepper won Olympic gold in men’s slopestyle skiing hours before you got out of bed this morning? Good luck with that. The people who were up at 3 a.m. to watch the event live — to be fair, it wasn’t 3 a.m. for all of them — have been tweeting, texting, emailing and Facebooking about it ever since Goepper **SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!** just kidding; we’re not going to blab it here. You’re welcome. If you’ve managed to avoid all those other spoilers, from the news alerts on your phone to the babbling of fellow passengers on the “train,” then you’ve pulled off the spectator’s equivalent of a triple cork. But the day is young. On Wednesday, there was a palpable tension between the people who didn’t yet know whether Chicagoan Shani Davis had won an unprecedented third gold medal in the 1,000-meter speedskating event and **STOP READING NOW IF YOU STILL DON’T KNOW** the rest of us, who were buzzing about his disappointing eighth-place finish. Thanks to our many gadgets, we’ve gotten used to the idea that we can watch things at our convenience. We can witness a sporting event unfolding 10 time zones away. Or we can wait and watch it at a more civilized hour, through the miracle of digital replay. But we can’t stop the people who know what happened from spoiling things for the ones who don’t. This doesn’t apply only to the Olympics, by the way. We were dismayed Tuesday night to learn via Twitter that the Westminster Kennel Club had awarded best in show to **SPOILER ALERT** a wire-haired fox terrier. So much for the DVR. But dodging the dog-show spoilers is a lot easier than avoiding Olympic updates. There are thousands of journalists in Sochi, after all, and their job is to relay the results as fast as they can. The race itself may be entertainment, but the winner is news. It’s what we do. So what can you do if you want to watch the replay as if it were in real time? Not much. You can find many laughable suggestions by Googling “how to avoid Olympic spoilers.” You can filter your email. You can download spoiler-screening apps for all your gadgets. You can unplug, unfollow, unfriend, unsubscribe. But you cannot unhear. If you somehow pull off a total media blackout, you still run the risk of learning the results of the biathlon from some random loudmouth in Starbucks. If you want to watch the games without knowing the results, your choice, really, is to stay up all night watching the livestream _ or spend the next 10 days cursing your gadgets and your co-workers. The Olympics are the coolest thing happening in the world right now. There’s no way to keep that quiet.
Young immigrants will help offset aging population
f you think the only reasons to welcome undocumented workers are generosity and compassion toward the “other” — to be welcoming to the stranger — you’re wrong. There is a very selfish reason to offer legal residency to the men, women and children who arrived here without papers: The United States needs all the younger workers we can get. This country, like much of the industrialized world, is in the midst of a demographic crisis, a slow-moving but quite evident population bust that will erode our standard of living and threaten our way of life. Simply put, we don’t have enough children and young adults. One of the easiest fixes Congress could make would be to pass an immigration reform plan that makes citizens of the illegal border-crossers among us, most of whom are still working age. That’s why they came. But members of Congress rarely link the two, partly because the aging population isn’t an easy crisis to discuss. Politicians don’t like to bring it up because it sounds like an attack on senior citizens — the very age group most likely to vote. But this isn’t a call to start putting the elderly out on an ice floe to speed their demise. Instead, it’s a clear-eyed look at a demographic reality and a proposal to help ease the population bust. A January report from the Congressional Budget Office laid out the problem: “Beyond 2017,” said the report, “CBO expects that economic growth will diminish to a pace that is well below the average seen over the past several decades. ... The projected growth rate ... is slower than
Commentary that during previous economic expansions for several reasons. The first is slower growth in the potential labor force ... resulting from long-term demographic trends, namely, the aging of the population and retirement of the baby boom generation.” That’s about as clear a statement as you can get in a report written by demographers and economists. And if you consider the labor market, you can easily understand it: Pre-retirement age folks fuel the economy -- filling jobs, creating businesses, paying taxes. They are the ones who pay for Social Security and Medicare, the entitlement programs for the elderly (The tax payments of current retirees were spent on earlier generations). If you want to see what happens when a country begins to age, just take a look at Japan, which has been stuck with a moribund economy for more than a decade. Several factors converged to doom a onceenviable growth engine, but a birthrate that dropped below replacement level played a major role. Europe, too, has been hard hit by the demographic bust. While the fiscal misfortunes in Greece have been blamed on corruption, lavish pensions and cultural practices that include stiffing the tax man, one of that nation’s fundamental challenges is its
aging citizenry. According to government figures, 19 percent of the Greek population is 65 years of age or older, while about 14 percent is under 15. Meanwhile, its average retirement age is 61, and average life expectancy is 79 years. That’s a recipe for debt-driven disaster. There are simply not enough young workers to support that many retirees. No austerity program, no matter how severe, can save the country from its gloomy fate. The United States has been luckier than many industrialized nations. Because of a range of cultural factors, American women tend to have more children than their European counterparts. But immigrants have been our salvation; their birthrates tend to be higher than those of native-born women. That means we haven’t yet suffered the demographic fate of Japan and Greece. But we haven’t solved the problem of an aging America, either. We need more young workers to support the huge baby boom generation, whose retirement will overwhelm the system. Fiscal conservatives are right to argue for reforming Social Security and Medicare before they go bankrupt. But too many conservatives refuse to acknowledge the nation’s need for the children and adolescents born to those who crossed the borders without documents. We ought to welcome them.

Letter to the Editor Rothlisberg innocent until proven guilty
Special to The Daily Union
To the Editor:
egarding the Feb. 6, 2014 article pertaining to Mr. Allan Rothlisberg’s comment and Mrs. Jan Stowe’s reaction, I can’t believe Mrs. Stowe went so far with this, especially with the title/name of her group. Mrs. Stowe says focusing on the accuracy of the quote isn’t important and “whether or not he said it was irrelevant at this point.” Really? Seems to me that a man, oh about 2000 years ago, was in a similar situation and the people hunted him down and crucified him. All without probable cause. And what about the “gentleman” who started all this with the comment? Will Mrs. Stowe also bring him under scrutiny? Now I was not at the meeting when Mr. Rothlisberg made his comments, but seems to me that he should be presumed innocent first. I am anxiously awaiting the facts of this matter.

About this page
oliticians say, “We’re all equal,” and pretend that they represent everyone. But, in fact, they constantly pick winners and losers. America is now like the place described in George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm”: “All animals are equal,” but some are “more equal than others.” “Animal Farm” was about Communism, but today the allegory applies to our bloated democracy, too. During the “fiscal cliff” negotiations that Congress and the media made sound so tough • as if every last penny were pinched — Congress still managed to slip in plenty of special deals for cronies. • NASCAR got $70 million for new racetracks. • Algae growers got $60 million. • Hollywood film producers got a $430 million tax break. When America’s going broke, how do moviemakers get a special break? By lobbying for it. Movies are a sexy business, so 42 states offer film producers “incentives” to film there. (State legislatures are as shortsighted as Congress). Michigan offered the juiciest handouts until the state ran out of taxpayers’ money. Now Ohio, Louisiana and Georgia (that’s why the latest “Hunger Games” movie was shot in Georgia) offer the biggest handouts. The mayor of Los Angeles recently declared a “state of emergency” — not over an earthquake or storm, but because so much moviemaking has left California for states with bigger subsi-
dies. The U.S., which used to pride itself on being more free-market than Europe, is now hardly different from France, which crippled its economy by subsidizing all sorts of old industries, and even gives money to producers of American films that mention France. Politicians everywhere are always eager to help out people who helped get them elected. In the U.S., labor unions were big supporters of President Barack Obama, and — presto — unions got 451 waivers from Obamacare. Congressional staff got a special exception, too. Funny how many of these laws are supposed to be great for all of us but, once passed, look ugly to the privileged class. So they exempt themselves. Even the crusade to save the earth is captured by the “special” people. Subsidies for “green energy” were supposed to go to the best ideas. Yet somehow your money went to companies like Solyndra, whose biggest shareholder just happened to be an Obama backer who bundled money for the president. And somehow Al Gore, who had a modest income when he entered politics, reaped $200 million from brilliant investments after he left office. He must just be really smart. On my TV show this week, progressive commentator Ellis Henican says this cronyism is “inevitable” and doesn’t really bother him: “If we want roads and bridges and prisons and a military and a safety net, someone somewhere is going to benefit from that. But you can’t use that as an excuse to not do important things for our society.”
I say it’s one more reason to keep government small. Politicians doling out favors quietly shift where society’s resources flow, who gets employed, what ideas are pursued. It distorts the economy and the culture — and it turns us into a nation of favor-seekers instead of creators and producers. What about all the new businesses that would have gotten investment money but didn’t have Gore on their boards? What new ideas might have thrived if old industries weren’t coddled? We don’t know. We will never know the greatness of what might have existed had the state not sucked the oxygen out of the incubator. Because of government’s favorgranting, Washington, D.C., is now the place where the well-connected go to get rich. For the first time in history, six of the richest counties in the U.S. surround D.C. When a small group of people gets to dispense $3.6 trillion and set rules that can help or kill your idea, you want to suck up to them. As long as government has the power to grant favors, cronies and their lobbyists will seek those favors out. The privileged win. The people lose.

Former KBI official charged with child sex crime
served in various roles at the KBI, leaving as deputy director — the agency’s third-highest administrator — in 2007 to become the executive director of the National Alliance for Model State Drug Laws in Washington, D.C.

In September of that year, he returned to the KBI as the agency’s deputy director and continued to serve as an assistant attorney general. rizing the bonds now goes to the full House Appropriations Committee for consideration. Also Thursday, a HouseSenate committee approved the university’s request for bonding authority for a $75 million health education building at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Before the vote, Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little told the House-Senate Building Construction Committee that the Medical Center needs new facilities to address a doctor shortage in the state and retain accreditation. Nationally, Kansas ranks 39th in doctors per capita, she said. “Our Kansas facilities are at capacity, but they are also antiquated and considered entirely unsuited for a modern medical curriculum,” she said. “Our facilities just don’t fit the way that medical education is delivered now.” The university has authority to issue $35 million in bonds for the project, and is asking the state to pay $15 million by issuing $1.4 million annually. The committee recommended approval of the $1.4 million for the fiscal year that starts July 1. The university also is requesting a $25 million federal refund in a longrunning dispute over Social Security and Medicare withheld from paychecks of former medical residents. The remaining cost of the building would be funded through private funds and gifts. would prevent lawsuits against someone who refuses, for religious reasons, to provide services to gay and lesbians will not pass in her chamber as it is currently written. Senate President Susan Wagle says Friday that the bill goes beyond protecting religious freedom. She raised concerns about discrimination and how it could impact businesses that would refuse services to gay couples. The bill passed the House on Wednesday, drawing strong reaction from across the country. It would prohibit government sanctions or lawsuits over faith-based refusals to recognize samesex unions or to provide goods, services, accommodations or employment benefits to couples. mentioned in the letter remain employed in the same capacities.
TOPEKA — A former Kansas Bureau of Investigation official was charged Thursday with sexual exploitation of a child and trying to destroy evidence. Shawnee County prosecutors said Kyle G. Smith, a former KBI deputy director, is charged with one count of sexual exploitation of a child for allegedly possessing a photo of a child engaged in sexually explicit conduct in November. He also faces two counts of interference with law enforcement, alleging he tried to destroy evidence on a telephone and on a computer. A local jail official said the 57-year-old Smith, who lives in Topeka, was released around 5:20 p.m. after posting a $15,000 surety bond. Smith’s attorney, Thomas Haney, did not return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment. Smith doesn’t have a listed phone number. The prosecutor’s office announced the charges in a news release but provided few details. KBI spokesman Mark Malick said in December that the agency’s human resources office issued a notice Nov. 26 that Smith no longer worked for the KBI. The office would not provide details, calling it a personnel matter. “We are saddened and disappointed that a past employee of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation is alleged to have committed the acts charged today by the Shawnee County District Attorney,” KBI Director Kirk Thompson said in a brief statement released Thursday night. Thompson added that any further comment from the agency would be inappropriate because the case is now before a court. The Topeka CapitalJournal reported that Smith had 32 years of experience as a prosecutor, law enforcement officer and administrator. After receiving a law degree in 1981 from The University of Kansas, Smith spent six years as a prosecutor in the Lyon County Attorney’s Office. In 1987, Smith was appointed assistant attorney general and general counsel to the KBI. Smith
Supreme Court overturns Lawrence conviction
LAWRENCE — A former Lawrence man will get a new trial in the 2004 death of his wife. The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned the murder conviction of Martin Miller. He was convicted of strangling his 46-year-old wife, Mary Miller, at their home because he was having an affair and wanted to collect $300,000 in life insurance. The Lawrence JournalWorld reports the Kansas Court of Appeals ruled in February 2012 that Miller should get a new trial because of errors in jury instructions at his 2005 trial. The Kansas Supreme Court agreed on Friday that the jury instructions were incorrect. The court said the jurors were told they could acquit Miller only if they had a reasonable doubt on every element of the charge, rather than on just one element.

Report: Kansas 2013 crop values down to $7.79B
WICHITA — The U.S. Agriculture Department is estimating the total value of Kansas crop production last year at $7.79 billion, a drop of 4 percent from 2012. The agency’s National Agricultural Statistics Service calculates crop values by multiplying the average marketing price by the amount of production in each state. Friday’s report said Kansas wheat production in 2013 was valued at $2.22 billion, down 22 percent from the previous year. The value of Kansas corn produced for grain was pegged at $2.31 billion last year, a drop of 13 percent. Soybean values for 2013 were estimated at $1.59 billion, up 30 percent from the previous year.
House committee rejects KU basketball apartments
TOPEKA — The University of Kansas was 1-for-2 before state legislative committees considering bonding authority for two major projects, missing on a request to build apartments for the school’s basketball players. A House committee Thursday rejected the university’s $17.5 million bonding authority to build 66-high end apartments — 32 for men’s and women’s basketball players — near Allen Fieldhouse. University officials have said the living space is needed to compete with other universities in recruiting. Each apartment would have a full kitchen, living and dining rooms, with lounges on each floor, two team meeting rooms, tutoring space and a multipurpose room. The university has said between $9 million and $10 million would be raised through private funds, and the bonds would be paid back through rent on the apartments. During Thursday’s House Education Budget Committee meeting, State Rep. Amanda Grosserode, R-Lenexa, called the project “incredibly extravagant” and State Rep. Allan Rothlisberg, R-Grandview Plaza, said he thought the university’s sports enterprises had enough money to build the project, The Lawrence Journal-World reported. The committee’s recommendation against autho-
Topeka court bullying claims not substantiated
TOPEKA — Topeka officials have found nothing to substantiate anonymous allegations of office bullying at city court. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that city manager Jim Colson said Thursday that the city’s human resources and legal department interviewed 11 municipal court employees while investigating the claims. The complaint was made in a letter sent to the city and media outlets. It centers on the municipal court, which is overseen by administrative judge Vic Miller. The letter didn’t allege Miller directly bullied anyone, but claimed he didn’t stop two employees from engaging in what the letter writer called hostile behavior. City spokeswoman Suzie Gilbert says the people

Silver rises 5 percent as metal prices rise
By the Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) — Gold and silver prices are sharply higher ahead of the long holiday weekend. Gold rose $18.50, or 1.4 percent, to $1,318.60 an ounce on Friday. Silver had an even bigger rise, jumping $1.03, or 5 percent, to $21.42 an ounce. Precious metals are having a great 2014 — gold is up 10 percent, silver 11 percent — following huge declines the year before. Gold fell nearly 30 percent in 2013; silver fell 36 percent. Silver tends to be more volatile than
gold, which has wider interest among investors, said Sterling Smith, a commodities analyst with Citigroup. So when gold rose earlier this week, it was expected that silver would have to play catch-up, Smith said. “The silver market has been underperforming gold all year and that tends to correct itself over time,” Smith said. Other metals also rose. March palladium futures rose $6.50, or 1 percent, to $737.60 an ounce. April platinum rose $13.50, also 1 percent, to $1,430.10 an ounce and high-grade copper futures rose a penny, or 0.4 percent, to $3.26 a pound.

USD 475 to start search for new superintendent
B Y C HASE JORDAN
The Daily Union. Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014
Dr. Max Heim was happy to see some familiar faces as he stood in front of the Geary County Board of Education and other district professionals. As the senior consultant for the Kansas Association of School Boards (KASB), the purpose of his Tuesday visit at the Devin Center was to help begin the search process for the next superintendent for the school district. As a former leader of Unified School District 475, Heim knows how important that role is. In the upcoming months, Heim will be busy lending a hand assisting USD 475 with finding a superintendent. “It’s one of the greatest places I’ve ever worked,” Heim said about his tenure from 1980 to 1992. He was assisted by Gary

He said USD the vacancy to post on the KASB 475 has great employees, staff and website. Next, sessions will be kids.
Some of the steps the Kansas Association of School Boards and USD 475 will take during the superintendent search include: • Develop a brochure about the vacancy for the KASB website • Meet with USD 475 staff and community representatives • Receive applications through March • Interview finalists in late March or early April • Announce a new superintendent, possibly as early as the second week of April
“We are one of the leaders in the state of Kansas and have been for many years,” Miller said. “We want to remain a leader in the education profession. We’re recognized in the nation for having some great accomplishments in our school district and we want to continue that.” Miller indicated their decision will have an impact on the district for years to come.
Personally, Miller wants the next superintendent to have experience in administration and education. Miller said he wants someone with empathy for people working with children in school buildings. “That’s very high on my list,” Miller said. “I’m interested in somebody with a high degree of integrity and honesty.” Miller said he also wants the next leader to carry on with technology and curriculum improvements. If the proper applicant is not found, KASB can extend the search, or assist with finding an interim and return in the fall. “The fiscal year of a school district is July 1, so superintendents almost always have to start then,” Heim said. For close to 40 years, KASB has conducted superintendent searches throughout Kansas. “They tend to be experts at this and will lead us through the process,” Miller said.
City working on marketing plan
B Y T IM WEIDEMAN
EDC members question why they weren’t consulted on capital campaign
B Y T IM WEIDEMAN
The Junction City-Geary County Economic Development Commission is taking baby steps toward preparing marketing solutions officials hope will attract bioscience companies to Junction City. Though a subgroup of the Economic Development Commission (EDC) was formed in November, progress on putting a marketing plan into action has been slow. During the EDC board of directors meeting Tuesday, Susan Jagerson, Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce economic development specialist, explained what’s in the works. “We’ve done some followup things,” she said. “We’ve contacted some site selectors.” Those steps are part of a plan for recruiting or approaching companies interested in locating closer to the National Bio- and AgroDefense Facility in Manhattan. Currently under construction near Kansas State University’s campus, NBAF likely won’t be fully operational until 2021. Research at the $1.23 billion facility will focus on protecting livestock and food supplies in the United States from diseases that could spread — accidentally or intentionally — from other countries. Though there’s still time, chamber and EDC officials want to get a jump on recruiting efforts. Previously, the EDC considered using a consultant to help with marketing. Jagerson told the board of directors Tuesday that likely would be too costly. Jagerson said they’re still looking into bringing a site selector to Junction City to assess the community’s preparedness. “We’re working on getting a proposal from them to get them to come in for a few days,” she said. If that works out, Jagerson said, the selector would visit sometime in March. Other than the site selector, the EDC is looking into how much it would cost to place a sign advertising Junction City to bioscience businesses at the Manhattan Regional Airport. Chamber and EDC officials also have been attempting to stay in the know on NBAF-related legislative happenings. Jagerson said she and Chamber CEO Tom Weigand attended Bioscience Day Jan. 30 in Topeka. The trip was an opportunity to speak to legislators, “telling them that Junction City is here and letting them know that we want to be involved in the (NBAF) conversations,” Jagerson said. Jagerson added she hopes the EDC subgroup focused on NBAF can meet again soon to continue pushing its marketing goals.
A decision made two weeks ago by the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors had one of its advisory committees questioning, to some degree, why it wasn’t consulted. The Junction City-Geary County Economic Development Commission board Tuesday voiced concern over a decision to pursue a capital campaign feasibility study that appears to have much to do with its primary focus — economic development. Though in general supportive of the study, some board members, including chairman Ben Kitchens, wondered whether the discussion should have been brought to the EDC. Kitchens, who also sits
on the chamber board, said he brought that up Jan. 29 before the study was approved. “I raised the question whether or not it needed to come to these tables first,” he said. But at the chamber board’s meeting, the directors decided it was appropriate for them to make the decision. “We just got circumvented, that’s all,” board member Gery Schoenrock said, later adding he too was supportive of the feasibility study. At the chamber board’s meeting, the directors unanimously approved entering into a contract with Jerry Hinson and his company, Regional Development Associates (RDA), to determine the feasibility of a community development fundraising campaign.
As part of the study, RDA will spend about 45 days polling community stakeholders. The study itself will cost about $25,000. The total cost, after additional expenses, is not to exceed $30,000. Two weeks ago was the third time Hinson delivered his pitch to chamber or EDC officials. Hinson’s second pitch was given to the EDC last year. “We decided not to pursue the capital campaign at that time,” Kitchens said Tuesday. Kitchens has said he’s supported pursuing the campaign from the first time Hinson spoke, but thought “maybe” the EDC should have had more say. Hinson and RDA have a successful track record, having operated campaigns that exceeded fundraising goals for Manhattan, Topeka and Pottawatomie Coun-
ty. “He’s never failed, if he’s been hired,” Kitchens said. The point of the campaign would be community growth. Hinson has mentioned economic development as a major part of that aim. As Kitchens pointed out, that’s the EDC board’s arena — to make economic development recommendations to the chamber board. “I still wonder what we’re in existence for if it’s not to discuss economic development,” he said. But Schoenrock said the study could return with suggestions to focus community growth in other areas, not necessarily only economic development. “We really don’t know, at this point, what the responses will be,” he said. County Commissioner Larry Hicks, a nonvoting
member of the EDC board, said the decision to pursue the feasibility study could begin the process of developing a path toward community growth. “The lack of a plan is what’s missing in terms of whether we’re going to have success,” Hicks said. If the feasibility study suggests a capital campaign could be successful, a decision will need to be made on whether to have Hinson and RDA actually carry out the campaign. Hinson’s campaigns typically run about nine to 10 months, with RDA and local representatives approaching potential donors about pledging a certain amount per year for five years. RDA would receive a monthly fee throughout the campaign.

Junction City police arrested a Minnesota man for transporting alleged drug proceeds and other charges Monday morning following a traffic stop on Interstate 70. Terry Wassather, 59, was arrested at about 8:31 a.m. after an officer stopped his vehicle at mile marker 304 of eastbound I-70 for fail-
ure to maintain a lane, according to a police incident report. On top of the traffic violation, Wassather was arrested for suspicion of transporting drug proceeds, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

K-State clinical pharmacologist collaborates with colleagues
MANHATTAN — The Nile is a river in Egypt. Sometimes that river is polluted with industrial waste, such as lead, which can cause detrimental effects on local sheep and goats via the water supply. Kansas State University’s Ronette Gehring is an associate professor of clinical pharmacology in the of anatomy and physiology department of the university’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She has joined a team of researchers from Egypt, Jordan and the United States in evaluating the effect of chronic lead intoxication in goats. In December 2013, the researchers published “Effect of chronic lead intoxication on the distribution and elimination of amoxicillin in goats” in the Journal of Veterinary Science. Gehring teamed up with other veterinary researchers at Iowa State University, Cairo University and the Jordan University of Science and Technology for the project, which was supported by the Egyptian Cultural and Educational Bureau. The group found that lead intoxication can impair the therapeutic effectiveness of the antibiotic amoxicillin in goats.

London Fashion Week kicks off
By The Associated Press
LONDON — Goodbye snowy New York, hello gusty London! After a week battling frigid temperatures and sleet in the U.S., the fashion crowd found little solace in the British capital as London Fashion Week kicked off Friday in sweeping wind and rain. No matter: the fashion crowd can always be counted on to show up looking like they just came from a magazine shoot, whatever the weather. Nor did the lack of big-name designer shows on Friday deter fashionistas from having a ball. Somerset House, the fashion week’s headquarters, was buzzing with street photographers and bloggers. Across the river, an alternative fashion show celebrated style for curvier women with “plus-sized” models, including David Hasselhoff’s daughter Hayley.

Models wear a design created by Mark Fast Friday during London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2014.
Use a little imagination, and you can star in your own. The fashion world may be notoriously snooty and exclusive, but a thriving street style and fashion blogging scene can make anyone an Internet sensation - provided their outfit is eye-catching enough. Somerset House was crawling with eagle-eyed street photographers hunting down the bestdressed attendees, and at every corner dozens of students, bloggers and model wannabes were twirling and pouting for cameras in the rain. “At fashion weeks, the show is
out here on the street,” said Carmen Negoita, a blogger in a bright red floppy hat, spiky leopard Christian Louboutin heels and a red coat draped artfully over her shoulders. Suzanne Middlemass, a photographer, said most women relate to street fashion much more than catwalk styles because it showcases “real women” mixing and matching accessible clothes. “I’m looking for something different. A bag or a shoe can really help you stand out. It can also be something really simple but well thought-out,” she said. The big no-no? Trying too hard. “You can always spot those,” she said. “Not everyone gets it right. You need to have an eye for it.”
Can’t get a ticket to a catwalk show?
Forget the catwalks, the street’s where it’s at
Away from the glitz and glamor at Somerset House, a much more modest catwalk show was quietly catering to curvier women. But Hayley Hasselhoff, model and daughter of Baywatch star David “The Hoff,” there’s no reason why plus-sized models

shouldn’t get the same recognition as stick-thin ones. The 21-year-old was making her debut catwalk appearance at London’s Plus Size Fashion Weekend Friday. The showcase coincides with, but isn’t related to, London Fashion Week, but organizers hope larger models like Hasselhoff could eventually be included on mainstream runways. “Calling it ‘plus size’ doesn’t do it justice,” she said after walking in a sneak-peek show for reporters. “It’s about women with curves, and women of all shapes and sizes. I just hope one day (events like this) will get the same respect.” Hasselhoff, who says she’s a U.S. size 12 to 14, has been modeling since she was 14. She’s recently returned to the catwalk after taking time off for acting classes. The showcase, only in its second year, features four catwalk showcases of bridal wear, swimsuits and lingerie over the weekend. It’s still a small event, but is almost certainly going to grow — the average British woman’s size is now a 14 to 16 (U.S. 10 to 12), after all.

“remote location in rural Geary County where the body of a female was discovered Wednesday night,” the press release stated. An evidence response team from the FBI was called in to help process the crime scene. Junction City police initially arrested Middleton Feb. 9 on a failure to appear warrant from Aurora, Colo. She was arrested on Fort Riley, though an address wasn’t disclosed. Woody was arrested Wednesday night at the Geary County Sheriff’s Department on a failure to appear warrant from Geary
County District Court in addition to the other charges. Woody, Middleton and Anderson had their first appearances Friday in Geary County District Court. Their bonds were set at $1 million, Geary County Attorney Steve Opat said. Junction City police still are investigating the case. The Geary County Sheriff’s Department, Grandview Plaza Police Department, Fort Riley Military Police Investigations, Army CID, Fort Riley JAG Office, Riley County Police Department and the Geary County Attorney’s Office are assisting the investigation.

Ancient dog burial site found in Mexico City
By The Associated Press
MEXICO CITY — Archaeologists on Friday announced the discovery of “an exceptional” ancient burial site under an apartment building in Mexico City containing the remains of 12 dogs, animals that had a major religious and symbolic significance to the Aztec peoples of central Mexico. Previously, the remains of dogs have been found accompanying human remains or as part of offerings, experts with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History, represents. “It’s a perfect name for a treasured place for the souls and founders of this grateful nation,” he said. Victory Chapel features 16 classrooms, four offices, and can seat 600 people in its worship and activities centers. Services will begin March 9, but the remaining five chapels on Fort Riley will remain open. The two troop chapels — Normandy and Kapaun — will be used for single-Soldier ministry initiatives and unit training. “You get variety, more things done and ultimately more tax dollars,” he said. Council Member Luan Sparks said Dollar General will offer a lot to Chapman. Sparks said the store will offer things the grocery store can’t, and vice versa. She also said it’s important for residents to spend their money in Chapman. “When you go to other towns, you’re investing your money in them,” Sparks said. or INAH, said in a statement. But this is the first time a group of dogs has been found buried together at one site. “This is definitely a special finding because of the number of dogs and because we have found no connection to a building or with the deceased,” said archaeologist Rocio Morales Sanchez. Aztecs believed dogs could guide human souls into a new life after death on earth, and could guard pyramids and other monuments when buried under them. The dogs were buried at around the same time in a small pit between 1350 a 1520 The two historic chapels — Main Post and St. Marys —will be used primarily as wedding chapels, and the Morris Hill Chapel will continue to be used by the A.D., the heyday of the Aztec empire. The team of archaeologists determined when the dogs were buried through ceramics and other items found in nearby pits under the apartment building in the populous Mexico City borough of Aztacapozalco, Sanchez Morales said. Michael E. Smith, an anthropology professor at Arizona State University who was not involved in the project, said the discovery is important because it is the first such find. “This is not the first time a burial of a dog has been found, but it is the first find Gospel congregations and other events. Groundbreaking ceremonies were held in August 2012, and just getting to this point, Rauch said, was well where many dogs were carefully buried together, in a setting that is like a cemetery,” Smith said. Morales Sanchez said they will need to dig deeper to see if there are other items that could help them find out why the animals were buried in that area. Smith said it will be important to see the results of the analysis of the bones. “That work will tell us about the breed of these dogs, and it may tell us how they were killed,” he said. “The full significance of the finds is rarely obvious at time of excavation; the analysis will give the full story.” worth it. “The most exciting thing is just seeing it all come together and get constructed,” he said. “Finally coming to this point is a very happy day for me.”

diers and their families can take back with them to the rest of their home. “It’s kind of like they get recharged during the week, and then they take this spiritual energy back to their families,” Rauch said, noting that women’s auxiliary groups will meet for Tuesday or Wednesday Bible studies, something he described as a “break” for

Neighborhood Revitalizations Program (NRP). Therefore, it’s going to be on the city’s tax roll. NRP funding for enhancements are accomplished by tax incentives and fundraising by governments, non-profit groups and small businesses. After contracts are finalized, Bieker said it’s a done deal with an opening set for

But Bieker said it can help improve the marketplace in Chapman. He was told by the developer their goal is to have residents think twice before leaving town to shop at Walmart. Tim Jury, council member, said competition is a good thing.

In September, Kneisl called for Colp’s termination, although his motion made during a city council meeting died for lack of a second. During Thursday’s City Council meeting, Kneisl said he’s had citizens come to his house several times with allegations of misconduct against Colp. “As a city council member, I actually believe that a lot of these allegations are true,” he said. “And I believe that Randy has lied and manipulated the system to where he is what I call ‘emotional blackmailing’ the mayor and some of the council members about some of this stuff.” Colp declined to comment after the meeting. Kneisl said any additional complaints should be submitted to the city offices. “I take these things to heart, and all that stuff,” Kneisl said. “I bring them up in front of the city. But if people want to start making these complaints, and all that stuff, just come down here, file a complaint and put it in (the city building) because allegations are just claims. “Until we’ve got proof that these are (factual) allegations, I can’t move forward with them.” Kneisl suggested the allegations may need to be discussed in a separate city council session. Former City Council member James Talley
also spoke during Thursday’s meeting about the health insurance issue. He’s spoken about the topic frequently since last fall. Talley has aimed questions at Milford Mayor Brad Roether, alleging he had a hand in allowing the insurance benefits to continue. Talley has said the council, including himself when he served, was negligent in its oversight of the matter. Talley suggested Thursday the incident was similar to Roether walking into a store, stealing a TV and giving it to Colp. “The loss here has been directly born by all our friends and neighbors, and the loss is much more significant to our small town finances than the hypothetical loss of a flat screen TV stolen from Walmart,” Talley said. Both Roether and Colp, Talley said, are bound by city codes that list their duties and ethics to follow while on the job. “Do our codes and rules only apply to some and others are exempt?” Talley asked. “It seems that way to me.” The city council discussed the issue in October during a closed session. City Council member Steven Lawson later said the council discussed the matter with its attorney, Rick James, and took an appropriate recourse. No further information was released. Talley hasn’t been satisfied with that response. “It’s unfortunate that if there’s to be any accountability or justice, it will have to come from the outside and not from ourselves,” Talley said.

The U.S. speedskating team is dumping the suits that were touted as the fastest in the world. Under Armour’s senior vice president of innovation, Kevin Haley, tells The Associated Press that the American team has received permission from the International Skating Union to switch back to its previous suits, starting with the men’s 1,500 meters Saturday. The U.S. came into the games confidently predicting that its new suits, developed with help from major defense contractor Lockheed Martin, would give it a technological edge. Instead, the Americans have yet to finish higher than seventh in the first six events, leading some athletes to grumble that the new suits were actually a hindrance. So, it’s back to the suits that were used previously in World Cups and the U.S. Olympic trials.

Junction City ends 8-game losing streak with dominant win against Washburn Rural
A party atmosphere filled the Shenk Gymnasium late Friday — and it had very little to do the winter homecoming festivities. Each member of the Junction City boys basketball team wore not only the Blue Jays’ home white jersey, but also an infectious smile spread across each player’s face. The Blue Jays were having fun, and it showed as they hustled up and down the court before running Washburn Rural out of the gym with a 59-37 win. “Thursday’s practice, that’s when it really started,” senior Semaj Johnson said. “Coach started it all, he was happy, joyful, he let us play a lot and as a team Please see Boys, 4B
Martin Truex Jr. is ready for a new start at Furniture Row Racing. He will make his debut for FRR at Daytona, a season after he lost his ride in one of the biggest scandals in NASCAR history. He lost his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, his sponsor, and his job — a trifecta of bad news that left him scrambling for a ride late in 2013. Truex hopes he found a home at Furniture Row, a onecar operation based in Denver, Colorado, far removed from NASCAR’s North Carolina hub. Truex made a couple of offseason trips to Denver to bond with his new crew. He’d like to help Furniture Row go back-toback with a Chase spot — something he can do with a victory. True has only two career wins, including one last season at Sonoma. After the penalties, he was 16th in the standings.

The Junction City girls basketball team had the start it wanted. The Blue Jays jumped out to a 10-4 lead in the first quarter against Washburn Rural Friday, and it looked as if everything would go right for once. But then the turnovers that plague Junction City turned up, as the Junior Blues outscored the home team 18-5 in the second quarter on the way to handing the Blue Jays a 55-37 defeat. “I think we were believing in ourselves and that’s something that when we do that, we’re going to be a very tough team to beat,” Junction City coach Nate Parks said. “But we have a hard time with adversity and we’re not strong enough to get through those moments yet.” The turnovers weren’t due to a high-pressure defense. Instead, they occurred once the ball was moved past half court. There, the Blue Jays would pick up the ball too soon or drive into traffic and lose the ball. “I think it’s just a confidence thing and being more mentally strong,” Parks said. “I think sometimes we over-penetrate too, and that’s where we get our turnovers but we’re working through that and we’re going to try to get better.” But the difficulties didn’t deter sophomores A’Kia Fain and Kealee Rains. In the third quarter, Fain continued to attack the paint. She scored all seven of Junction City’s points in the Please see Girls, 4B
Trail Blazers cool off after hot start
The Portland Trail Blazers are learning the hard part of rising to the top of the league is staying there. Portland limps into the AllStar Break having lost four of its last six games. While LaMarcus Aldridge makes his third All-Star appearance and Damian Lillard makes his first, the rest of the Blazers will get a much needed break. It’s been clear that they’re fatigued. After a 2-2 road trip, the Blazers fell 98-92 at home Tuesday night to Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder, before losing 122-117 to the Clippers in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. After spending time this season atop the Western Conference, Portland is 36-17 and currently knotted in a three-way tie with Houston and the Clippers for third place, behind the Thunder and San Antonio.
Embiid out against TCU

LAWRENCE — Kansas coach Bill Self is facing a balancing act between making sure star freshman Joel Embiid recovers from back and knee injuries yet doesn’t miss too much time on the court. The 7-footer sprained his knee against TCU on Jan. 25 and has been dealing with back pain for a while. While he hasn’t missed any games, his playing time has decreased. He played only 18 minutes in an overtime loss to Kansas State on Monday night. The seventh-ranked Jayhawks play the Horned Frogs again on Saturday. “Of course you think long-term, but you also know that he’ll have a better chance to perform in games in the future the less time he’s off now,” Self said Thursday. “We’re not going to do anything to jeopardize him at all, but based on the doctors and the trainers, they’ll Please see Embiid, 3B

Royals start spring training optimistic about playoffs
B Y A LaN E SKeW
SURPRISE, Ariz. — Starting pitcher James Shields entered Royals camp on Friday wearing a shirt with the word “propaganda” on the front. The Royals begin spring training with hopes of ending a 29-year-old playoff drought since winning the 1985 World Series. “The Royals’ propaganda, I think we’ve going to have a really good spring training,” Shields said. “I’m real excited to be here and get going. Hopefully, we can continue doing what we did at the end of the year last year. “We’re in high spirits. We’ve got a lot of work to do. I think spring training is where it all starts. Our main goal this year is to go to the playoffs and win the World Series, bottom line. We don’t take anything for granted.” The Royals went 86-76 in
2013, their first winning season since 2003 and their most victories since 1989 when John Wathan managed the club to a 92-70 record. They remained in the chase for a wild-card playoff berth until the final week of the season, but finished 5 1/2 games back of Tampa Bay for the final spot. “I think our players were able to have some quality experience of being in a pennant race,” general manager Dayton Moore said. “Prior to that, battling through a real tough May when the expectations were high, they battled through it.” The Royals lost 20 of 28 games in May and were six games below .500 at the All-Star game, but finished 43-27 after the break. “Credit Ned (Yost) and the coaching staff getting through that tough time and got the ship righted and start very well,” Moore
said. “It was predicated primarily on our pitching and defense. I think that quality experience allowed them hopefully understand the rhythm of the Major Leagues, kind of the ups and downs.” The Royals welcomed 31 pitchers and six catchers, including All-Star and Gold Glove winner Salvador Perez, to the opening of spring training on Friday, but several have been at the Surprise complex for several days for volunteer workouts. Although the reporting date for position players is not until Wednesday, several are already working out, including 2013 Gold Glove winners left fielder Alex Gordon and first baseman Eric Hosmer, designated hitter Billy Butler and newly acquired second baseman Omar Infante. Spring training is no longer a six-week period for players to get in condi-
tion. “Everybody comes in in shape,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They like to work. It doesn’t really get stale for them, so no need to really freshen up on anything. They’ll all been here for the most part. I told the position players not to come in tomorrow as they’ve been working hard down here. “As a player I didn’t like standing around. I didn’t like doing things that I didn’t think helped us in anyway just to be doing things, so we try to eliminate all of that. Spring trainings have run really smoothly the last eight or nine years, do I don’t have to tweak it much.” Shields will be a big key to the Royals’ success this season. He went 0-4 last May, despite his 2.92 ERA for the month. He was 4-1 in September with a 3.18 ERA to finish 13-9 with a 3.15 ERA.
“We know it’s a long season, 162 games in 181 days, that’s a lot of games,” Shields said. Shields, who pitched in the playoffs three years with Tampa Bay before being traded to the Royals after the 2012 season, believes this season could be longer, extended into October. “Last year I compared
the two teams,” Shields said. “I’m not going to do that. We’re our own team now. We’ve established ourselves as a good team. I think the dynamic of this team is from top to bottom, whether its defense, base running, pitching, our bullpen and our offense, I think overall we’re really good. We just need to be able to put it together.”

if we want to finish in the top three, top two and if KU starts to lose, to have a chance at the conference.” K-State has flirted with road wins on multiple occasions against, mounting second half comebacks against Texas, Iowa State and West Virginia before ultimately falling short. Part of the problem has been slow starts proving too big a hole to climb out of. “It’s been real frustrating because sometimes we play bad in the first half, or not as well as we should, but in the second half we get going and the other teams are already in their grooves so it’s difficult,” senior Omari Lawrence said. Marcus Foster, the Wildcats’ leading scorer, said it’s an adjustment playing on the road. K-State is 3-6 in road or neutral court games. “It’s a different environment,” Foster said. “I’m used to seeing purple everywhere and there’s different colors, so it’s just something that when you get to the gym, you’ve got to get used to it.” Baylor entered conference play with only one loss on its resume but since has experienced significant trouble. The Bears are desperate to turn their season around fast in order to qualify for postseason play. But the Wildcats are licking their chops at an opportunity to play against a team that plays predominantly in a zone defense. “I definitely like when I hear teams play zone,” Foster said. “Spread them out, with Will, Shane and me, we can hit a lot of shots. They’re going to have to come out on us and that’s when (Thomas Gipson), Nino (Williams) and Wes (Iwundu) will get their shots. We have to be smart, we can’t go crazy and just shoot up a bunch of shots. We’ve got to keep playing how we’ve been playing.” A road win not only keeps the Wildcats conference title hopes alive, but would provide a significant boost to the team’s tournament seed. And after defeating two top-20 teams last week, a win could also vault the Wildcats back into the top-25. “Right now, all the pieces are coming together,” Foster said. “This is the perfect time for it to come together with the end of the Big 12 Conference and the start of the Big 12 and NCAA tournament.”

make the call along with Joel on him being honest with us and how he’s feeling.” Self said MRI exams came back negative, and Embiid is feeling better after missing practice all week. But he won’t play Saturday. “A lot of times there’s no reason to hold guys out if they’re healthy, too. We’ll make that determination in the next few days,” Self said. Embiid has gained attention this season while averaging nearly 11 points and eight rebounds for the Jayhawks. Those numbers may appear modest, but they have NBA scouts salivating because Embiid, a native of Cameroon, has only been playing for a few years. With footwork honed on soccer fields and timing developed on volleyball courts, Embiid has shown the kind of natural ability that has drawn comparisons to Hakeem Olajuwon. He was two blocks shy of a triple-double against Oklahoma
State, and he still managed 11 points and 12 rebounds last week against West Virginia despite dealing with pain. Embiid hasn’t played more than 17 minutes in any of his last three games. “He’s looking around to see if he’s going to get hit as opposed to initiating contact because he’s sore and hurts in different areas, so yeah, I think there’s certainly some signs he hasn’t been himself,” Self said. “But like I said before, it would be like to me if you’re a running back and your high ankle sprain hasn’t totally healed but you could go out there.” In other news, Self said he planned to sit down with reserve forward Jamari Traylor on Thursday to discuss his status for Saturday’s game. Traylor sat out Monday night’s game for what Self called disciplinary reasons. “Jamari and I are going to visit today, and I’ll hold off on that until after we visit,” Self said. “But I certainly anticipate that visit going well.”
Drummond’s 30-25 wins Rising Stars Challenge
B Y B RIAN M AHONEY
NEW ORLEANS — Andre Drummond grabbed everything in sight, even that MVP trophy that came apart. Drummond had 30 points and a Rising Stars Challenge-record 25 rebounds, leading Team Hill to a 142-136 victory over Team Webber on Friday night. Coach Nate McMillan said general manager Grant Hill talked to his team before the game about performing like Denver’s Kenneth Faried, who had 40 points and 10 rebounds while winning MVP honors last year. The message got through to Drummond, who grabbed 14 offensive rebounds. “Drummond had in his mind that he was going to go out and play the game hard,” said McMillan, an assistant to Indiana coach Frank Vogel. “Every rebound that came off the board, he wanted. A few of them he took from his teammates, but I liked his aggressiveness.” Besides an impressive tally of dunks and rebounds, Drummond even managed to make his free throws. A 41 percent shooter during the regular season, the Detroit forward went 6 for 8, including a pair with 29 seconds left after chasing down Bradley Beal’s missed free throw to give his team a five-point lead.

TEMPE, Ariz. — Jermaine Marshall scored eight of his 29 points in the second overtime and Jordan Bachynski blocked T.J. McConnell’s layup attempt with 6 seconds left, sending Arizona State to a 69-66 victory over No. 2 Arizona on Friday night. With both teams struggling offensively most of the night, Arizona State (19-6, 8-4 Pac-12) turned to Marshall when it counted. He went over 20 minutes without a field goal, but hit consecutive 3-pointers and scored on a drive with 14 seconds left to put the Sun Devils up 67-66. McConnell then tried to drive the lane, but Bachynski swatted his shot away, leading to Jahii Carson’s breakaway dunk. Arizona State’s fans rushed the court, had to be cleared because there was 0.8 seconds left, then poured out of the stands again after Nick Johnson missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer. McConnell led Arizona (23-2, 10-2) with 17 points and five rebounds. Kaleb Tarczewski had 13 points and 13 rebounds, and Aaron Gordon had
13 points and 10 rebounds for the Wildcats, who shot 35 percent and went 4 of 14 from 3-point range. Carson finished with 17 points and six assists. Bachynski had 13 points, seven rebounds and blocked eight shots. Arizona turned the first desert rivalry game into a rout, racing away from the Sun Devils for a 91-68 win in Tucson on Jan. 16. A lot has changed in a month. Arizona lost one of its best players in its only loss of the season when forward Brandon Ashley injured his right foot against California two weeks ago. The Wildcats managed to win their first two games without the versatile sophomore, against the two Oregon schools last week, but had to rejigger their lineup to compensate for his absence. Arizona State has been on a roll since that loss, winning five of its past six games to get back into the NCAA tournament picture. The Sun Devils also had Marshall, their second-leading scorer, back in the lineup after he missed the first game with a groin injury and Bachynski has been playing better after missing all three of his shots in Tucson.

He eventually got to hoist the MVP trophy, though not before it fell to the court when a representative from game sponsor BBVA tried to hand it to him. It comes in two pieces, a star on top of the base, and the presenter was apparently unaware when he grabbed it by the top. “It happened last year, too, so I wasn’t expecting anything less,” Drummond said. “Usually a slip-up happens every year with the trophy. So I wasn’t too shocked about that.” Cleveland’s Dion Waiters had 31 points, mostly coming during a 1-on-1 duel with New York’s Tim Hardaway Jr. in the second half. Beal finished with 21 for Team Hill, picked by former NBA star Hill. Hardaway scored 36 points and made seven 3-pointers for fellow former Michigan star Chris Webber’s squad. Philadelphia rookie Michael Carter-Williams had 17 points, nine assists and six rebounds. Portland’s Damian Lillard had 13 points, five rebounds and five assists in the victory, making him 1 for 1 during the busiest All-Star weekend ever. Last season’s NBA Rookie of the Year will take part in five events, three more on All-Star Saturday and the All-Star game on Sunday. All-Stars such as Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard and Kyrie Irving watched the game, with Irving leaping to his feet at one point after watching Waiters, his Cavaliers teammate, try to take over the game with about 8 minutes to play. Waiters had two baskets and then two 3-pointers, one of them when he stepped back after faking a move to the basket that made Hardaway lose his balance. Hardaway answered back with two 3-pointers of his own as the crowd roared. “We were just trying to do a great job of just getting the fans involved,” Hardaway said. “It was kind of dead in there and we just wanted to just start something, a little 1-on-1 battle here and there, and it was great.” Waiters then clinched the duel when he knocked the ball free for a rare defensive highlight in the game, nailing his second straight 3-pointer to give team Hill the lead for good at 126-124 with 2:44 left. Drummond followed with a dunk for a fourpoint advantage, and Team Webber could never catch up. The game that began as a matchup of top rookies and later turned into rookies against secondyear players now mixes the rosters. That’s probably a good thing, since this year’s crop of kids is so underwhelming. Only two of the top 10 picks in the 2013 draft, which has been hindered by injuries, were invited to this game, No. 2 Oladipo and No. 9 Trey Burke. Players were picked to play on Team Hill and Team Webber, which they wore under their numbers on the back of their jerseys. Drummond 16 points and 10 rebounds in his first 10 minutes and shot 12 of 21 for the game.

collectively, we were joyful.” With the game knotted 10-10 in the first, senior Danny Thornton hit a 3-point shot on his first attempt of the day. The next trip down the court, he scored again. Junction City ripped off a 20-3 run that stretched into the second quarter as they took hold of the game. But Junction City coach Battle knew a quick start from Rural could cause trouble for his team. “We basically said that we need to take the next few minutes of the third quarter and we need to end this thing,” he said. “That’s really what it was. We talked about the three things you need to do to defend your lead, defend, rebound and attack the basket.” The message set in with sophomore Raye Wilson. He grabbed a defensive rebound from a block and scorched the Junior Blues’ defense down the court for an open layup to score the first points of the half. Then, junior Tanner Lueker stole the ball and on the fast break made a quick pass to senior Jonathan Wilds. Wilds instantly sent a pass across the lane to a hustling Wilson for the open bucket, giving the Blue Jays a 36-20 lead. And the Blue Jays defense locked down, holding Rural to just six points in the third quarter. “We didn’t feel like they could run with us and the scoreboard showed that,” junior Jordan Lawrence said. Thornton and senior Ja’Male Morrow each came off the bench to lead Junction City with nine points. But both contributed much more. Morrow was a constant factor on the boards. In the second quarter, he grabbed an offensive rebound and went right back up with it for the score. Then, on the other end of the court, he took a charge. “Ja’Male honestly is a leader,” Johnson said. “He speaks out, he’s very independent and he might not get the minutes he wants, but he doesn’t complain about it, he does his role very well. Coach told him to come off the bench and give us a spark and that’s exactly what he does.” Before the game, Junction City debuted a hype-up video featuring the basketball seniors. It was put together a few months ago by the faculty. Thornton thinks it contributed to the Blue Jays’ energetic start. “The little video at the beginning of the game kind of got our minds right,” he said. “We were hyped at the beginning of the game and
period, on her way to 12 for the game. It was an important step for the sophomore, as she is working her way back from a knee injury. “With A’Kia, we’ve had a lot of talks over the whole season, and getting her healthy and mentally strong that’s helping her,” Parks said. “And I think we’re going to see good things from her the rest of the season.” Rains, the Blue Jays’ deft shooter, finally found her rhythm. And once she gets rolling, it’s hard for her to stop. Rains knocked down three shots from downtown in the final frame as she led the Blue Jays with 14 points in the game. “I think (Rains) is a fighter,” Parks said.

playing music in the locker room, having a good time and came out focused, ready to play.” Every member of the Blue Jays checked into the game. But more importantly, even when not on the court, the bench played a significant role in keeping the team’s energy high. At every stoppage in play, they stood up and let their teammates hear their support. “The bench is really our motivator,” Wilds said. “When they’re not hooping and hollering, it’s hard for us to get going. When we’re having a bad game and no one’s talking to us, we’re still going to be stuck in that hole. But if our teammates on the bench get us going, forget about everything, let’s just go have fun.” Junction City (5-11) heads to Manhattan on Tuesday for the second leg of the rivalry. The Blue Jays will try and avenge the 35-32 loss the Indians delivered in January that began an eight game slide. “(I’m) very excited,” Wilds said. “All I can say is be ready, just be ready.”
Ethan Padway • The Daily Union
“There were some certain things they were doing to her to make her put it on the floor and not get shots off so she had a tough time taking shots. But she just kept fighting and was eventually able to get some space to get some shots off.” Junction City (3-11) hits the road to play Manhattan Tuesday. The Indians handed Junction City a 63-40 loss in January. Parks said his team knows what to expect from Manhattan and physically, they can match up. “They’re going to pressure us, they’re going to pound us inside, they’re going to push the ball down the floor,” he said. “We just have to get it out of our minds that we can’t beat Manhattan. We’re going to have to change mentally and understand we can play with these teams we’re losing too.”

Fiance leaves with children after 14 years
Dear Annie: I have been with my fiance for 14 years, and we have had our fair share of problems. Three months ago, I left, taking our kids with me. But I came back when he asked me to. I figured I owed it to the children to try to work things out. But nothing has changed. I don’t have a job outside the home. However, I do have credit card debt. He used to help pay it off, but now he refuses to pay any of my bills. He won’t give me any money except to buy groceries. Our car used to be in both of our names, but now it is only in his name. I’m not allowed to go anywhere without asking for permission or to talk to any of my family and friends unless he says it’s OK. We also live with his parents, and every time I don’t do the dishes, they complain. I do all the other housework, but it isn’t enough. What do I do? He thinks everything is just fine. — At My Wits’ End Dear Wits: Get out. This is an abusive relationship. Your fiance has removed all sources of income and support from you so that you are completely dependent on him. Please contact the Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 1-800-799-7233. You need help now. Dear Annie: My son and his first wife had a destination wedding in a foreign country. My husband and I hosted an engagement party in our hometown, and a friend of mine threw the bride a shower. My son and daughter-inlaw divorced, and he is now engaged and planning a second wedding. My brother-in-law made a comment that he and his wife do not send gifts for second weddings. My son is torn about how to handle the invitations. While it is his second marriage, it is the bride’s first. He doesn’t believe she should be penalized because his first wife ended their marriage. What is the etiquette regarding this matter? We certainly don’t want anyone to feel that my son and his fiancee are wanting heaps of gifts and money, especially when these family members and friends “showered” him with gifts the first time around. — Vexed Mother of the Groom Dear Vexed: First-time brides are entitled to wed-

ding and shower gifts, regardless of the groom’s prior marital history. Of course, shower invitations can be weighted toward her family and friends, but also may include close family members and friends on the groom’s side. Guests who feel overburdened with shower gifts do not have to attend. And while wedding gifts are always appropriate, those who sent gifts for your son’s first wedding may wish to give a more modest gift the second time around. The intention is to invite people to share the celebration. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Frustrated Son,” whose mother was insisting that he be confirmed in the Catholic Church. As the director of religious education in a Catholic parish, I deal with this issue frequently. The choice to be confirmed is the son’s. A good first step is for the son to talk to his parish priest, who might very well agree that he is not ready to receive the sacrament of confirmation. If that is the case, he absolutely should not be confirmed at this time. He cannot be forced, because any sacrament given against someone’s will is not valid. Both my children said early on in their confirmation training that they did not want to be confirmed. We compromised that they would go to the classes, do the volunteer work and go on the retreat. If, after completing the two-year training, they still felt that they did not want to be confirmed, it was their choice. — Boston

Wizard of Id
ARIES (March 21—April 19). When things are going well and the weather is fair, you will enjoy yourself, all the while cognizant that the mettle of mankind can’t be tested in temperate conditions. Heroes are made in the heat of the moment. TAURUS (April 20—May 20). Can you entertain a thought that you don’t really believe? It doesn’t make you foolish; it makes you intellectually versatile, educated or possibly in love. GEMINI (May 21—June 21). If you felt like coming up with an excuse, it would take you no time to think of it. But such thinking could easily become a bad habit. Most people want to know why, but nobody wants to hear the excuse. CANCER (June 22—July 22). Your need for attention is stronger than usual, and you may surprise yourself with what you’re willing to do to get it. Promises could fly out of your mouth if you’re not careful. When in doubt, hold back. Don’t agree to anything. LEO (July 23—Aug. 22). You’re not imagining things. Those who express their displeasure indirectly are still expressing their displeasure. This is dysfunctional, and you won’t be able to move forward until you get to the root of it. VIRGO (Aug. 23—Sept. 22). Popular people can be powerful at times, but strictly speaking, popularity is not power. If you don’t have group support or approval for what you want to do, but it feels right to you, do it anyway. It’s likely to be your power move. LIBRA (Sept. 23—Oct. 23). Give yourself a pat on the back for all that went right yesterday. Enjoy the sense of relief that comes. The hard part is over, and now you can relax into whatever the day brings. SCORPIO (Oct. 24—Nov. 21). Aim your ideas at people who seem like they have plenty of ideas of their own. An excitable, high—energy person is more likely to say “yes” than a cool, bored type of person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22—Dec. 21). You don’t have to impress anyone. Be careful not to dangle a proverbial carrot on a stick in front of a person unless you really plan to give that person the carrot in the end. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22—Jan. 19). You are highly influential in the lives of others today, even though you probably will be unaware of what they take away from the experience of knowing you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 18). You could get caught up in the spirit of competition. Channel it into work instead of relationships. Singles: There’s nothing to be gained from stealing a heart, so aim to win it fair and square. PISCES (Feb. 19—March 20). Some urge not to “sweat the small stuff,” and others insist that the little things are what make the difference between an ordinary and an extraordinary existence. Happiness depends on finding your own balance in this.

A Valentine’s Day love story from 1854
Museum Musings The families arrived around the same time as the Territorial Legislatures. Before they could even find lodgings for themselves they were recruited to help feed the delegates. Ruth Berry, 16 years old, was quickly set to work making pies for the delegates from “anything which could be found in the way of pie filling.” It is recorded that she made over 70 pies under the most primitive cooking conditions. Ruth had the honor of serving her pies at the representatives opening banquet. Sitting at Governor Andrew Reeder’s table was a 28-year-old Quaker school teacher from Pennsylvania, Garbet Fisher Gordon. He had come to Kansas lured by the countless opportunities the territory offered. Gordon was smitten when he laid eyes on Ruth. Although there was a considerable difference in their ages, Gordon courted Ruth. During their courtship they saw many changes in the little town of Pawnee. They met on the eve of the first and only legislative session that was held in the First Territorial Capital. There was much to see and witness while the legislatures were there. Disagreements between the residents and the delegates quickly broke out. The residents of Pawnee were predominantly free staters but the visitors were mostly pro-slavery and both sides were extremely vocal in their beliefs. The legislative session opened on July 2, 1855 and officers were elected. The officers quickly made motions to expel the only two free staters who had been elected. On July 3 the governor made his address, guiding the assembly in how Kansas should be governed. His words were largely ignored by the legislatures. On July 4 a bill was passed to move the legislative seat to Shawnee Mission, which was where the legislatures originally wanted to meet. Governor Reeder promptly vetoed the bill. However, the legislature passed it and quickly suspended the session planning to reconvene in Shawnee Mission on July 16. By the end of July cholera was running rampant among the workers at Fort Riley. Many residents left Pawnee fearing an epidemic. Many who stayed fell ill and died from the disease. By September the remaining residents were ordered to leave Pawnee by the U.S. government. The reservation had extended its borders, and the site of Pawnee was now within the reservation. Writings by Reetta Morris Hadden, who was a child at Pawnee, describe the time, “a squad of mounted troops from the fort rode into Pawnee. They came to give official notice that the site of Pawnee had been taken for the use of the government, and all of its citizens must vacate their homes on or before Oct. 10 … the next day the quartermaster at the fort made the lower story of the Capital building a commissary department.” On the evening of Oct. 10, 1855 there were still a few families living in Pawnee as they had not been able to find or build other shelter. Troops came with huge grappling hooks and began pulling the homes down. When they were finished the only building left standing was the capital. Despite the traumatic events going on around them Gordon kept courting Ruth. By February of 1856 she had agreed to be his wife. Years later Ruth recounted crossing the frozen river with her family on the eve of her wedding in a sled pulled by oxen, “it was in the night, because the ice was stronger.” Their destination was the former territorial capital which was being used as the quarters for the Rev. Clarkson, the Fort Riley Chaplin, and his family. It was there on Feb. 14, 1856 that G.F. Gordon and Ruth Berry were married in the Clarkson’s parlor where not long before the future of Kansas had been debated. They were married for 37 years and saw many changes in Geary County throughout their lifetimes. But that will be a story for another time.
alentine’s Day was yesterday and it brought to mind a pioneer love story. In 1854 it became known that Pawnee was to be the site of the Territorial Capitol and people began flocking there. The first legislative session was scheduled to take place there in July of 1855. The site was located near the edge of Fort Riley and almost overnight a town sprang up. There were workers who came to build the homes and buildings needed for the new town. There were also entrepreneurs and adventure seekers coming to see what new opportunities they would find. Many brought their families with them to this new territory. Among these were the Berry and Wallace families, emigrants from Juniata, Pa. They came to seek their fortunes in the newlyopened territory.

US rappers Odd Future banned from New Zealand
By The Associated Press
WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The manager for banned U.S. rap group Odd Future says Tyler, The Creator, and his fellow members in the collective have changed over time and aren’t being given credit for growing up. New Zealand immigration authorities Thursday banned the Los Angeles rappers from entering the country after deciding they pose a threat to public order. The group was due to play an open-air concert with headline act Eminem on Saturday in Auckland. “It’s disappointing because it’s coming from a place where the reasoning is based on lyrics and/or actions that happened when these guys were teenagers,” manager Christian Clancy said. “And if that’s a stance someone’s going to take, then what are you implying? That you don’t allow talented kids to grow and change?” Border Operations Manager Karen Urwin said authorities decided to decline visas to six group members after becoming aware of a 2011 incident in Boston in which some witnesses claimed group members incited fans to attack police officers. “It’s not a decision we take lightly and not one that happens often,” Urwin said. Tyler, The Creator, vented his frustration on Twitter on Thursday. “They said we were ‘terrorist threats and bad for the society’ or whatever. Sick,” he wrote. He later tweeted, “I love NZ tho.” The hip-hop group, which is also known as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, was initially known for its anarchic style and lyrics that canvas drugs, killing and rape — though those themes have been toned down in its more recent work. Urwin said the six rappers had intended to stay in New Zealand just a few days before leaving for Australia. She said it was rare to ban musicians under rules that cover character concerns. She said those provisions in the past have been used to stop people like white supremacist group leaders and high-

Lots of color and shapes at Proenza
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Proenza Schouler designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough are nothing if not energetic. In fact, “the boys,” as the popular designing duo is known in the fashion world, practically bounded out onto the runway to take their wave to the crowd after their show Wednesday night in a downtown art gallery. Hernandez was still bouncing backstage minutes later. “It’s all about energy and humor,” he said of the latest collection. Proenza is known both for inventive designs and inventive ways of engineering fabric, and this collection was no exception. Their multicolored prints looked something like really nice building insulation; in fact, their invitations to the show were thick creations that seemed to contain a layer of insulation inside. The shapes, too, were inventive: jackets and coats with very wide sleeves, round shoulders, and cinched hourglass waists, for example, were both unusual and flattering. Two things that don’t always go together. Asked about their design process for the collection, Hernandez allowed that it had been “intense. It’s always intense.” But, he added, “It’s fun. We’re putting the fun in fashion again!” He wouldn’t describe right away how “the boys” made their fabrics this time; it was probably too complicated. “We’ll talk later!” he said with a smile.
Thursday’s snowstorm doesn’t keep fans away from Ralph Lauren
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Ralph Lauren’s runway show happened to come around the height of Thursday’s winter snowstorm, with a fierce wind whipping down the Greenwich Village streets near his showroom to such an extent that some people were taking cover against the sides of buildings, and shielding their faces from sleet. Once they got to the building, they had to climb over mounds of powdery snow. Pity — or admire? — those who still felt they should arrive in fashionable heels. Like Ashley Kozel from Sarasota, Fla., dressed in Louboutin pumps. “It’s fashion over function,” said Kozel, who had actually hitched a ride on her boyfriend’s back for a few yards to avoid stepping in the ice and snow. Most people made the more practical choice, wearing chunky snow boots or at least rubber rain boots. But come they did, undeterred by the conditions. For their troubles, they were awarded with not one fashion show, but two. First on the runway was Lauren’s new, casual Polo collection. Then game his more glamorous Women’s Collection. In casual clothes, Lauren featured sweaters in bright colors — bright orange or neon green, for example — with short leather skirts. An orange quilted parka seemed warm enough to wear out into the storm. A tan leather fringe jacket was more autumn-like. A black motorcycle jacket bore whimsical patches like one for Penzoil. Shoes included clog sandals, hiking boots, and black patent Mary Janes. Then came the more formal collection: Flannel suits, cashmere coats and jackets in colors like pale pink and cream, a shearling cape, a “Mongolian lamb” wrap. The shorter dresses were paired with tight-fitting, over-the-knee boots. A series of evening dresses were strikingly simple, focusing on the quality of form and fabric: They came in lavender crepe, pearl gray flannel, silk in pale pink or in a gorgeous gray shade. Actress Kim Basinger was effusive afterward, even teary. “I was invited by the Lauren family, and I am just so thrilled, I mean ... I’ve loved him for so many years... I’ve loved everything he’s done from vintage to, my God, this show. It took my breath away.” While Lauren’s runway show didn’t include any of the U.S. Olympic team uniforms he designed, he did come out at the end wearing his Team USA boots — very practical for the weather, indeed.
Comcast mega-deal stirs memories of TV’s Kabletown
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Where is “30 Rock” when you need it? During seven seasons, this clever NBC comedy made sport of the real-life acquisition of NBC Universal from General Electric by the cable giant Comcast. In the pretend world of “30 Rock,” NBC’s new owner was the make-believe Kabletown, a mammoth socalled “family company” based, like Comcast, in Philadelphia. But now “30 Rock,” which concluded its run last winter, isn’t around to weigh in drolly on the justannounced purchase by Kabletown, er, Comcast of its rival Time Warner Cable. The deal, which with regulatory approval could close by year-end, would have likely provided some laughs for “30 Rock” fans, many of whom might be expected to view an even more gargantuan cable colossus with jaundiced, or at least, wary eyes. It’s a deal that would combine America’s top two cable TV companies for a total of about 30 million subscribers. Subscribers might welcome some comic relief. TV viewers — even those satisfied with their own cable service — traditionally relegate this industry to depths similar with Congress, airline travel and, well, journalism. So don’t look for many high-fives on Twitter, where, in New York City and Philadelphia, “Comcast” and “Time Warner Cable” were trending Thursday with irate and woeful forecasts for what a combined company might bring. One of the operative hashtags: (hash)Monopoly. Monopoly, schmonolopy, insist Comcast and Time Warner Cable. Through the purchase, as Comcast stated in its announcement, “more American consumers will benefit from technological innovations, including a superior video experience, higher broadband speeds, and the fastest in-home Wi-Fi. The transaction also will generate significant cost savings and other efficiencies.” Rrrrreally? The deal could indeed result in a company whose even-greater scale makes it better able to serve its customers, as Comcast promises. Unless, instead, it’s even more dismissive than the current two competitors may seem to their respective subscribers. The deal could put Comcast in an improved position to launch new technical innovations and new program content. Or, thanks to its dominant purchasing power in the marketplace, it could halt bold advances in their tracks by rejecting them from its infrastructure or program lineup.

profile Holocaust deniers. She said some people wrongly assumed authorities considered the group’s lyrics in imposing the ban. “If we banned people who used swear words, we wouldn’t have many people left in New Zealand,” she said. In an official statement, Immigration New Zealand said: “Odd Future has been deemed to be a potential threat to public order and the public interest for several reasons, including incidents at past performances in which they have incited violence.” In the 2011 incident, Tyler, The Creator was signing autographs at a comic store when police were called because of the large number of fans. News reports at the time said some people climbed on the roof and shouted insults at the police, and some viewed that as inciting fans to attack. Urwin said an Odd Future group member in Australia also tweeted details of a woman campaigning to have the group banned, which resulted in her receiving threats. In 2012, New Zealand banned former heavyweight boxing champion and convicted rapist Mike Tyson from coming to a speaking engagement due to his criminal history. Last year it banned musician David Rovics, citing his blog posts on drug-taking and a Canadian ban for giving false information to immigration officials there. Clancy said the group also had trouble with protesters that led to the nixing of an appearance a Big Day Out in 2012. The group scheduled another show instead at a club, then toured the country, which he said they fell in love with. He said he wishes those who are protesting their visit could “sit with them for a day.” “I live with these kids,” Clancy said. “They hang around my 6-year-old daughter. They hold her hand when they cross the street. ... All these kinds of judgments. The last time we were there they were homophobic. These are the least judgmental kids I’ve been around in my life.”

Penguin India yanks Hinduism book after outcry
By The Associated Press
NEW DELHI — Under pressure from a small Hindu nationalist group, Penguin India publishing house has yanked all copies of an American scholar’s narrative history of Hinduism from sale in India and ordered them destroyed. The group Shiksha Bachao Andolan Samiti, or the Save Education Movement, had objected to religious historian Wendy Doniger’s 2009 book, “The Hindus: An Alternative History” for describing mythological texts as fictional and, thus, hurting “the religious feelings of millions of Hindus,” according to a lawsuit filed against Penguin India. A leader of the group filed the lawsuit in 2010 against the Indian publishing house as well as the New York-based arm Penguin Group Inc. On Monday, Penguin India said that, as part of a case settlement, it was ordering all Indian sales of the book to cease and all copies to be pulped. By Thursday, bookstores in the capital of New Delhi were refusing to sell any copies. The action stunned writers and intellectuals in India, with many wondering how one of the world’s oldest publishing houses had given in to demands by right-wing nationalists. Some worried it was a sign of growing intolerance of dissent in India, with the country’s main Hindu nationalist party, the Bharatiya Janata Party led by Narendra Modi, campaigning aggressively for this year’s elections. “You have not only caved in, you have humiliated yourself abjectly before a fly-by-night outfit by signing settlement,” novelist and rights activist Arundhati Roy wrote in a letter to the publisher printed Thursday in the Times of India. Roy, best known for her Booker-prize winning novel “God of Small Things,” is also published by Penguin, though she suggested she may rethink the relationship. “You owe us, your writers an explanation at the very least,” she wrote, saying the publisher’s decision “affects us all.” An editorial in The Hindu newspaper excoriated Penguin India, saying that in allowing itself “to be browbeaten into submission by a little-known outfit that saw no contradiction in its own sweeping slander of the author ... is a comment on the illiberalism incrementally taking India in its sweep.” Doniger is not the first author to be silenced by religious or political conservatives in India. In 2011, the state of Gujarat where Modi has held the top office for 12 years banned Joseph Lelyveld’s biography on pacifist freedom fighter Mohandas K. Gandhi, after reviews suggested Gandhi had a homosexual relationship. The same year, the Indian government banned visits by American writer and broadcaster David Barsamian, who has said he believes his reports from the disputed region of Kashmir may have irritated officials, though he has never officially been given a reason. India-born writer Salman Rushdie’s 1988 book “The Satanic Verses,” has been banned in the country, as many Muslims consider it to be blasphemous. Rushdie was forced to cancel a 2012 appearance at the Jaipur Literary Festival in the northern state of Rajasthan amid protests and threats by prominent Muslim clerics. Doniger, a professor at the University of Chicago, said herself this week she was “angry and disappointed,” as well as “deeply troubled by what it foretells for free speech in India in the present, and steadily worsening, political climate.” But she defended Penguin India, saying in a statement that the publisher “took this book on knowing that it would stir anger in the Hindutva ranks, and they defended it in the courts for four years, both as a civil and as a criminal suit,” until being defeated “by the true villain of this piece — the Indian law that makes it a criminal rather than civil offense to publish a book that offends any Hindu.” While regretting that thousands of copies would be pulped, she hinted that Indians would still be able to read the book if they wanted on Kindle or possibly through other online postings. “I am glad that, in the age of the Internet, it is no longer possible to suppress a book.”

‘Dinner With Friends’ has lots to chew on
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — When a long-married couple gets divorced, their entire inner circle suffers a ripple effect; even their friends can go through painful adjustments. Donald Margulies’ 2000 Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Dinner With Friends” chronicles consequences that test loyalties among longtime friends and within marriages when one of a close pair of couples erupts in a bitter breakup. The foibles and personalities of Margulies’ finely delineated characters remain fresh and contemporary in the smart revival that opened Thursday night at Roundabout Theatre’s Laura Pels Theatre. As he often does, Margulies raises important questions about relationships while providing few answers. Although all the characters are only

seen together once, in a flashback to the beginning of their foursome, their intertwined friendships and long history are cleverly illustrated through Margulies’ trenchant dialogue in a series of brief, telling scenes. Thoughtful, straightforward direction of an expressive cast by Pam MacKinnon allows characters to silently reveal their reactions to disturbing epiphanies. Tom and Beth, (Darren Pettie and Heather Burns), getting unamicably divorced, seem immature and uncommunicative. Their happily settled, food-obsessed friends Gabe and Karen, (outstanding portraits by Jeremy Shamos and Marin Hinkle), are deeply concerned with their friends’ situations, but soon find themselves nervously examining the potential fragility of their own marriage.

By Associated Press
SALT LAKE CITY — The 13 finalists unveiled Thursday for a board that will oversee the redistribution of about 750 homes and parcels of property in Warren Jeffs’ polygamous sect on the Utah-Arizona border includes nine members of the community but no current followers of Jeffs. The list was announced by Utah Third District Court Judge Denise Lindberg, who made public the names of candidates who passed background checks and met minimum requirements set out by judicial order. There were 24 people who applied. The homes in the trust are part of a trust that has been tied up in the courts since it was seized by Utah in 2005 over allegations of mismanagement by Jeffs and other leaders of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The state’s goal has always been to return the homes and a scattering of property — worth an estimated $118 million — to community members. The creation of board is a key step toward a resolution. The public has seven days to send comments about the candidates. After that, Lindberg will meet with the finalists with a goal of picking a board of five, seven or nine people. There is no set time limit on making a decision. If she doesn’t think she can put together a group of people who will “act independently and in the best interests” of everyone with a stake in the trust, Lindberg could scrap the idea of forming the board and keep the trust in the court’s hands. Bruce Wisan, a Salt Lake City accountant who was put in charge of the trust and knows the community well, doesn’t think that will happen. He said nine of them live in Colorado City, Ariz., or Hildale, Utah, collectively known as Short Creek. Three of the applicants have been members of an advisory board that has

worked with him for years. “It’s about what I expected. I think it’s a good list,” Wisan said. “I think they’ll be a good board that can come out of that.” The finalists are: Gregory Barlow, Jethro Barlow, Deloy Bateman, Margaret Cooke, M. Jvar Dutson, Holly Ernest, Sheleigh Harding, Thomas A. Holm, Michael Hughes, Willie Jessop, Arnold Richter, Lane Ronnow and Don Timpson. Jessop is a well-known former bodyguard of Jeffs who has left the sect. Bateman, Cooke and Timpson have been on Wisan’s advisory board. “They’d make great board members,” Wisan said of his board members. None of the finalists are members of Jeffs’ sect. That’s because their jailed leader has made it clear they are not to participate, Wisan said. Wisan recently spoke with a follower of Jeffs who he said would have made a great board member. Wisan said he asked him to consider, but the man told him merely applying would mean getting kicked out of the sect. “He doesn’t want to lose his family,” Wisan said. Many of the estimated 7,500 people living in the communities are still followers of Jeffs, who is serving a life sentence in Texas for sexually assaulting two underage girls he considered his brides. The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a radical offshoot of mainstream Mormonism whose members believe polygamy brings exaltation in heaven. Jeffs is trying to lead the sect from jail.

Bill says schools can teach Christmas, Hanukkah
By The Associated Press
of the Alabama Citizen Action Program, said the bill is in response to what he sees as a growing movement to stifle religious expression. “We are happy there is a recognition that students have a right to express their religious views. We know they already have the right, but this reinforces that right,” he said. Susan Watson, executive director of the ACLU of Alabama, said teachers and students can already exchange holiday greetings and study traditional winter holidays, but school teachers and administrators can’t favor one holiday or religious belief over another. “School administrators and the teachers they employ must be very cognizant that their curriculum and methodologies serve to educate — not promote their own religious beliefs,” she said. Christmas and Hanukkah are the only celebrations mentioned in the bill. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays are the only greetings mentioned. Democratic Sen. Quinton Ross of Montgomery tried to add several celebrations, including Kwanza, Winter Solstice and Hindu and Muslim observances, but the Sen-
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama Senate approved a bill Thursday that the sponsor said will keep education about Christmas and Hanukkah in public schools. The bill by Republican Sen. Gerald Allen of Tuscaloosa upset the Senate’s black members when the Senate refused by a two-vote margin to amend Allen’s bill to add the African-American celebration of Kwanza. “I pray for the day when we can have an Alabama Legislature sensitive to all the people of Alabama,” Senate Democratic Minority Leader Vivian Davis Figures of Mobile said. Allen’s bill allows schools to educate students about the history of traditional winter celebrations and allows student and staff to exchange traditional greetings. “Schools are often mistaken that any reference to Christianity and religious activities are prohibited. This will brings clarity,” Allen said. The Senate passed his bill 3x5.5 8/13/02 4:41 PM House Page 1 22-7 and sent it to the for consideration. A large religious lobbying group supported the bill. Joe Godfrey, executive director
3x5.5 8/13/02 4:41 PM Page 1
ate blocked him on a voice vote. Then he tried to add only Kwanza and lost 10-12. Some Democratic opponents of Allen’s bill said it is an election-year gimmick for Republicans and is certain to get challenged in court. The ACLU’s Watson said Allen’s bill and a similar bill introduced in the House by Republican Rep. April Weaver of Pelham run “the risk of opening school districts up to costly and time-consuming litigation.” In additional to traditional greetings, the bill allows public schools to display nativity scenes or menorahs, but any religious display must include either a symbol of another religion or a secular symbol, such as Santa Claus. Proponents said that is already done in some schools, but the bill will give comfort to school officials concerned about what might be permissible. Eric Mackey, executive director of School Superintendents of Alabama, said his group isn’t taking a position on the bill, but school superintendents haven’t reported any problems to him. “I don’t think it is needed,” he said. Mackey said he’s also concerned about unintended consequences.

How to be a successful gardener
Field & Garden Many of our soils are high in clay content. This can make them a real challenge to work with. There are no magic solutions or additives you can spray on to make them better. The only solution is compost or organic matter. By tilling in organic matter of nearly any kind, compost, leaves, rotted silage, composted manure, etc., you help to break up those clay soils and make them much easier to work with, more readily taking in water and then releasing it back to the plants. Next, use organic mulches whenever possible. With our variable weather we need to cool the soil and protect it from our winds. Around landscape plants I like to use bark mulch. I’m fond of shredded cypress because it breaks down slower. In gardens I like to use wheat straw, prairie hay, and grass clippings are okay if they are dried first. Trying to use fresh-mowed grass clippings will lead to developing the equivalent of a thatched roof. Not good. You also don’t want to use grass clippings for a couple of mowings after herbicides are applied. The residue can damage tender and sensitive garden plants. Avoid using sprinklers to water gardens and flowerbeds. For one thing, sprinklers put all the water in the air, often in fine droplet form. You lose a lot of water to evaporation that way. I’ll begrudgingly allow them on lawns, but confine your lawn sprinkling from 3 to 10 a.m. We can have low humidity and high wind speeds in the summer and the loss to evaporation is just too great. Additionally, especially in gardens and flower beds, sprinklers lead to wet leaves and wet leaves lead to diseases. Use drip irrigation, black soaker hoses, even a slow running open hose and furrows in the vegetable garden. Keep the water at the base of plants and you’ll use less water, you’ll have healthier plants and better produce. Don’t be a spray and pray type of gardener. But don’t hesitate to use a pesticide if needed. Many pesticide applications aren’t really necessary or they are done in the wrong way and at the wrong time. Know what the problem is and whether treatment is needed, and then what will work. If you aren’t sure what the problem is, bring it in to me for identification. It’s what I’m here for. Finally, recognize that we are between a zone 5b and 6a hardiness zone. Our frost-free date is Mother’s Day. Purchase plants that are adapted and then plant them in the right place at the right time. If you aren’t sure, yup, you guessed it, ask me. Gardening is great fun, and after this winter we’ll all need a little gardening, to help clear the cobwebs of winter out of our minds and our souls.

here are a lot of self-help books out there for gardening. There are dozens of gardening magazines, websites, blogs and other information. Naturally I have to also say that some of the best help available for local gardeners is going to be the information that we have for free at the Geary County Extension Office, 119 E. Ninth St. Lots of bulletins about flower gardening, vegetable gardening, lawns and ornamentals. But when you come right down to it, a lot of gardening is really all about the basics. But the basics here on the plains of Kansas are different than the basics in Texas, or Pennsylvania, or Chicago, or many other places where they publish gardening books and magazines. So following are some basic tips that I tell all vegetable and flower gardeners.

Check this off your list
Living Resourcefully of this on more than one occasion). It is even more frustrating to begin making a meal only to realize that you didn’t buy the key ingredient you went to the store to purchase. I would guess there are a few of you nodding your heads because you have had similar experiences. The trick to creating a list as a way to get organized is in making sure the list is helpful, accessible and user-friendly. Here are some ideas on how to do just that: If you are creating a list of bills that need paid, list them in order of when they are due. If you really want to get on top of bill paying, you can create a printable spreadsheet that has each bill listed by company name, address, payment amount, and account number. Use this as a guide each month as you pay your bills. You can even put a digital checkmark next to it with the date it was paid, if you want to go paperless. Don’t laugh – trust me, it works. If you are creating a grocery list, there are many different ways you can organize your list. You can create a generic list that follows the floor plan of the store you most commonly shop at. There are also generic grocery lists that provide a list of basic foods so you can highlight or circle the ones you want to purchase. My colleagues at Iowa State University Extension have developed a variety of grocery lists you can print off to use: http://www. extension.iastate.edu/ then use their search option to find “How to Make Your Master Lists.” You can even create a “health focus” list to make sure your purchases are in line with your dietary restrictions. The American Heart Association has an excellent tool that will help you create a certified hearthealthy shopping list. Celebrate American Heart Month this February and check out their grocery list tool at http://checkmark.heart.org/ that way. For grocery lists, I would rather sketch out what meals I plan to prepare for the week and create a list on a small spiral notebook I use for a variety of lists. For the list I keep by my bed, I usually write those tasks on a square sticky note so that I can put it in my purse as I am leaving for work. You will need to find a system that works for you. Each list has its own purpose and you will find that the design and accessibility of the list will need to be developed around that purpose. available through University of Illinois Extension http://urbanext.illinois. edu/housing/tables/06. html, which includes items for all four seasons. Storing these lists in the same location each season will make them more accessible. You can keep them in a file folder in your home office or in a notebook you label for that purpose. Keeping ourselves and our lives organized requires intentional planning and routines. Creating and using lists is one way we can achieve both. They can reduce stress and increase efficiency. If you want more information on creating and using lists for grocery shopping, home maintenance, bill paying or other living routines, contact me at the Geary County Extension office (785) 238-4161. Until next time, keep living resourcefully.
live for lists. Rather, I have a better life because I have lists to keep me on track. Most of us have standard lists we create. We make lists for groceries, errands, or bills to pay. I have even been known to keep paper by the bed so I can make a list of the tasks I keep thinking about that are keeping me awake at night. Did you notice I said we “create” lists and “make” lists while omitting the word “use” in my introduction about lists? The reason we create lists is typically because we have too much to do and have too little time to get it done. It is frustrating to get a “late notice” because we forgot to drop a check in the mail or because we neglected to take care of it through online bill paying. The service charges tacked on for late payments can add up fast. None of us have time to stare at the grocery store shelf trying to remember what else we were supposed to pick up (Okay, I am guilty
Organize your list
As I mentioned above, I keep a spreadsheet list of my monthly bills. Not only do I have this saved on my computer’s hard drive, I keep a printed copy with my checkbook register so that I have access to it when I am paying bills. Keep the list secure, though. You don’t want to leave it out where someone might accidently throw it away or misplace it for you.
Keep your list(s) accessible
I really tried to keep a grocery list on my iPod, but it just didn’t work for me. I like to write on my lists, and the iPod doesn’t work
Lists need to be user-friendly
Not all tasks are tackled weekly or monthly. Some tasks are seasonal, such as winterizing the home or planning your garden. March 20 is the first day of spring, and it won’t be long before you can get your spring home maintenance list out for spring cleaning. There is an excellent home maintenance list
Keep seasonal lists in a central location
